Alicante, Spain - Streets and Squares
Narrow streets with rugged vistas are fun to explore.
Mild, balmy evenings find many people outdoors. The streets at night are alive with the young and old and every age in between. Some are taking a stroll before going home to dine, others are comparing menus from the myriad restaurants along the promenade and in the squares.
The street scene is a treat. As we passed the big old church on our way to dine, we cheered the happy couple as they huddled together for a photo shoot.
We always opted for eating under the stars. My favorite Spanish dishes are paella, white tuna, grilled sepia, baked bacalao and the simple ensalada mixta. White Tuna is a local Alicante fish that is not on the menu but may be available as the catch of the day. It is the best fish I have ever tasted.
