History of Altea


The town is still largely unspoiled by any big hotels; only the narrow cobblestone streets and small town squares, or plazas, of a traditional town of old Valencia. The narrow winding streets take you up past overhanging Spanish houses with balconies, until you emerge into the big square in front of the domed Basilica. This is the church Nuestra Senora del Consuelo or Virgen de Consuelo with a magnificent dome of blue and white glazed ceramic tiles.

The beaches at Altea are mostly pebbles, the best of these is just South of Altea, the Playa de Albir, the beach of the increasingly popular town Albir (some 3 km South of Altea).
