XXXII International Meeting On Fundamental Physics

Located in the middle of Costa Blanca, Alicante is one most important tourist destinations in the Spanish east coast. The city and its harbour are flanked by the Benacantil mountain, a rocky promontory crowned by the Santa Barbara fortress. From the top of the old walls one has a commanding view of the whole city, while at the same time enjoying the impressive coastline, and many kilometres of the beautiful countryside.

The coastline is, without a doubt, the favourite recreational spot for the people of Alicante. The promenade of Explanada de España, located across from the port, is a lively boulevard, sprinkled with terraces and pavement cafés. A more modern leisure area extends along the port's breakwater, where there are also many bars and restaurants. Next to both of these places lays the urban beach of El Postiguet, a privileged spot for enjoying the sea and the sun.
