It is also known as the city of light, in which 70% of the days are good weather, which makes it easier to enjoy its white sand beaches. Another of its attractions is in its gastronomy, starring the rice dishes (there are 300 cataloged specialties and it holds the seal of Quality as the best rice city). At the top of a castle, inside a cave or on an island, there are some unique venues that will bring an extra originality to the concept of your event; that you can dress with activities like yoga in front of the sea (wellness, relax and mindfulness stomp), visits to wineries or mills with tasting (for winelovers and foodies), showcooking of paellas or corporate regattas (betting on the local be trend). And if in your incentive you plan to leave your attendees free time (they will be delighted, more and more demand is demanded) they will be able to enjoy the classic Alicante afternoon or by the old town and Castaños street. Archeology lovers will like to visit the site of El Tossal de Manises and the Roman city of Lucentum, ancient Alicante, and contemplate the views from the Albufereta hill.
Arabic inspiration with Mediterranean essence. One of the charms of Alicante is the cultural and historical mix that it inherited during the Muslim invasion (the traditional festival of “Moors and Christians” is well known) and historical enclaves such as the Santa Barbara Castle, located on the top of Mount Benacantil, in front of Postiguet beach and the marina, where events can be held. In the enclosure of the fortress there are two units: The Felipe II Room, a covered space for 350 people, and the Patio de Armas, an outdoor space with capacity for 450 people. The Archaeological Museum of Alicante MARQ is also a multipurpose space that has the auditorium for 200 people, and a garden. The Alicante Cruise Terminal, on the Levante dock, offers a diaphanous room with the possibility of separating spaces for events of more than 1,000 people.
