Altea is one of the most beautiful villages along the coast of the Costa Blanca. The old town is situated on a hill. From here you have a beautiful view over the city and the sea. The houses are white, the streets are winding and everywhere you see little art galleries and flowers. From afar the blue dome of the Virgin del Consuelo church can be recognized. Altea also has a lower section. Here you can find the promenade, the beach, cafes and luxury shops. Also Altea is well served by train. From its little station you can walk to the beach or uphill to the Old Town.
