Explanada de España


La Explanada de España is one of the city’s emblems. It runs parallel to one of the port wharfs and is lined on both sides with rows of palm trees. The floor is decorated with 6.600.000 tricolour marble tiles forming a design with a characteristic wave effect mosaic.

During the summer season it houses the Alicante Craft Fair where you can buy typical products (sweets and nougat), leather crafts, glass, clothing and everything you can imagine. Throughout the year, it also hosts the traditional ‘hippie’ stalls, where you can buy souvenirs from Alicante, jewellery,  fashion accessories, t-shirts and all kinds of items.

On the Explanada you will also find the emblematic building known as Casa Carbonell and the open-air Auditorium known as “La Concha” which hosts numerous concerts and cultural events throughout the year.
