From my roof terrace I can see the picturesque, blue dome of the church in Altea. It is a very recognizable piece of Altea. In my opinion the most characteristic part of Altea. I had never seen him up close. In October 2016 it finally happened. Not too hot and not too cold. A great moment to visit the casco antiguo of Altea. If you go there with children, it is best to first drive up as much as possible by car, find a parking spot and climb up the last stretch. Along the way you pass small shops with art and clothing.

When you reach the top, you can enjoy the fantastic view of the sea. On the church square you will find restaurants. I didn’t drink or eat anything there, because it’s a bit pricey there. So in that respect I am very Dutch again. You can eat well down on the boulevard in one of the restaurants there. Of course I also saw the church of Altea from the inside. If you want to get married in front of the church, the church of Altea is a very nice place. The church square and the sea view also offer good perspectives for the most beautiful wedding photos.
When you are bored up, you can go back down again. The number of steps down is 204. My daughter really enjoyed counting them together with grandma. For toddlers it is still quite a lot, but with enough distraction they can keep up. Once downstairs you can continue the day on the boulevard. That day I had dinner with my family at restaurant Columbus, on the boulevard of Altea. A wonderful moment of rest after climbing and walking through the old center.
