District: LA MARINA BAIXA Population: 18225 Area: Costa Blanca Altitude: 61 Located in a bay at the mouth of the Mascarat gorge, Altea nestles between the sea and the mountains, presenting an almost symbolic image of the Costa Blanca. Crowned by the blue and white domes of its parochial church, the town sits atop a ridge which juts out into the waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Small, beautiful coves and beaches adorn a shoreline abounding with the same charm and pristine whiteness found in the town itself. Seafood and vegetables are the stars of Altea? s cuisine, which offers a rich and ample variety of dishes. Amongst these typical dishes the most famous are snails and onions, cruet de peix (fisherman? s pot), sea urchins and the well-known arroz a banda (rice made with fish stock) and empedrat(white bean salad). Savoury pastry specialities include the superb coca a la lluma and coca farcida. Altea´s old town is well worth visiting. Here you can lose yourself in the labyrinth of steep cobbled streets and stumble across fascinating nooks and crannies. Outside town, other places of interest include El Forat, and the Garrofert and Runar springs. Just a few kilometres away, you can find the bustling town of Benidorm (10km) and the unrivalled beauty of Calpe and its Peñón de Ifach (9 km). Inland, the blue and white landscape gives way to orange groves and the remains of bygone civilisations in the towns of La Nucia, Polop, Callosa d´En Sarrià, Guadalest and Finestrat … between 6 and 18 kilometres away
