A visit to Altea starts at the highest part of the town. From the Plaza de Nuestra Seņora del Consuelo, boasting a church topped by unique blue and white tiled cupolas, a magnificent view over the district can be gained. Cobblestoned streets and steps descend the hill, flanked by whitewashed houses, which were once protected by town walls. At the foot of the hill is the fishermen's quarter, now enlivened by a seafront promenade and a port, which keeps the town busy. Along streets and around plazas, craftsmen and artists mingle with holidaymakers and neighbours to form a captivating crowd.
