What to do?

1)   Historic Old Town

The Olla Mines were primarily used for the extraction of ocher, a pigment used historically for coloring and painting.

3)   The old bunker in Altea, located within the Serra Gelada Natural Park, is a relic from the Spanish Civil War era. This bunker is part of the defensive fortifications built along the Spanish coast during the 1930s.

 

 

Tips:

1: The rocky coastline of Altea, while scenic and beautiful, may not be the ideal choice for traditional sunbathing, especially when compared to sandy beaches.

 

2: If you are feeling adventurous, you can walk from Serra Gelada Natural Park to Benidorm (the distance is around 5 km).

 

3. In order to see the bunker walk near the beach. (not a good idea, if you hate rocky coastline).
