  • Very nice with shops and restaurants and very good cobbled streets overlooking the sea. Church in the high and balustrade part with views.

  • A walk through the streets of the old Altea is definitely an experience. All steep streets come up off at the square in front of the Church that high and central to this old town, but also strolling through the streets what further afterwards is very marrow fun. Really a nice picturesque happen.

  • The high part of the village and views of the azure Mediterranean are moments for framing. I could not imagine I would like both.
