When you visit the Russian orthodox church of Altea, in Costa Blanca in the province of Alicante, you will discover a surprising edifice. This spiritual centre, blessed in 2007 and decorated with fascinating gilding, has been entirely constructed with Russian building materials. More surprising still, it is the copy of a 17th century church, situated in the Oural region. The church contrasts with the surrounding architecture of the region; reason enough for a visit!
The ancient Roman settlers in the region relied heavily on the sea and salt: It formed the basis of their trade. This trade gave rise to the planning of a town, including these very baths. The site is made up of three parts: the Roman Vicus, the thermal complex of the Muntanyeta and The Baths of the Queen.
These facilities, testifying in particular to the luxury of the time, constitute a truly cultural heritage.
Come and visit the Terra Mítica amusement park! More than fifteen attractions await you at the park. Plenty to ensure you have lots of family fun. But the park doesn't only offer attractions: around ten different shows covering various periods of history take place every day. Plenty of restaurants and bars ensure you can take a break from it all. And if you want some souvenirs of your day, visit one of the shops.
The nature lovers that you are will be able to discover these 45 hectares of protected space. From a size point of view, the park is one of Europe’s smallest, but it’s not the least interesting! Its bioclimatic characteristics, its position and its orientation allow the development of a unique and diverse flora. It’s for this reason that the park is one of the most visited in the Valence region. Among other things, you can admire around 80 different species of birds that are either breeding, migrating or that are simply wandering.
The Salt flats of Calpe are a naturally wet space. They are made up of a lagoon created by a double tongue of sand. The location of the Rock of Ifach, right nearby, played a decisive role in the formation of this area.
For a long time, this natural space remained an economic resource for the city because of the salt: it was used to store fish that was then offered for sale.
Today, the salt flats are a land-based maritime zone. In particular, it is home to many species of birds, especially the pink flamingo.
