About this Wheelchair accessible Alicante Historical Wonders Tour

At the beginning of the day, you will be picked up from the cruise port by your English-speaking guide. He will meet you with your driver and private adapted vehicle. This day will be a combination of a panoramic tour in the comfort of your private transport and a walking/rolling tour to discover the historical wonders of Alicante.

Castle of Santa Barbara

On this tour, you will visit the famous Castle of Santa Barbara. This fortress is considered to be one of Europe’s largest medieval fortresses. Here you can enjoy some breathtaking views over the city and the Mediterranean. Unfortunately, not all parts of the Castle are accessible; however, you can reach the stunning terrace with your wheelchair. It is the most spectacular part of the Castle because of the views it has to offer.

Cathedral Church of Saint Nicholas

You will also pass the historical City Center to visit the Cathedral Church of Saint Nicholas. It has a beautiful renaissance façade and an impressive 18th century Baroque Town Hall. You will be able to immerse yourself in the unique history of this church.

On occasion, the entrance to the Cathedral Church may be closed due to a special mass or religious act.

Palm-lined Esplanade

Another site not to be missed is the palm-lined Esplanade of Spain. On this boardwalk, you can taste the ‘horchata,’ regular sweetened milk of crushed tiger nuts — a local specialty introduced to Alicante by the Moors.

While walking/rolling through the local market and traditional gastro shops, you will discover the local gastronomy of Alicante. An excellent opportunity to try out some other typical dishes if you wish.

The Fogueres Festival Museum

Last but not least, there is the must-see Fogueres Festival Museum. Spot the collections of ‘ninots indultados’: the effigies that managed to escape the excruciating flames. Here, you also see mock bonfires, typical costumes, etc.

After a half-day full of sightseeing and walking/rolling around, your guide will drop you off at the cruise port again.
