    Christian pilgrims from all over the world come to Alicante to visit the monastery of St. Veronica and St. Lika. The purpose of their trip is a holy relic, a canvas with the Face of Jesus Christ, with which, according to legend, St. Veronica wiped sweat and blood from Jesus’ face. The monastery is built in the Renaissance style, but its ensemble includes an older fortress tower, dating from the beginning of the 16th century.

    To visit Alicante without making a promenade along the Boulevard Explanada de Espana is impossible. This is not just the main pedestrian street of the city. It is extraordinary! Its cover is a bizarre pattern of a million small marble mosaics that create an optical illusion. In addition, there are 4 rows of tall green palms, in the shade of which it is so pleasant to stroll under the hot Spanish sun.
