Altea's beautiful Old Town is home to many artists and writers.
They draw inspiration from the whitewashed houses and cobblestone streets.
From the church square on top of the town there is a beautiful view of the ocean.
Here you will find a large selection of restaurants, bars and cafes.
There are many art exhibitions and shops, and several small boutiques selling handcrafted jewelry and clothing.
Further down the city becomes more busy, with designer boutiques and well known chains.
Along the promenade you can enjoy the view, the fishing port and marina, the sea air and a wide variety of restaurants.
