Alcoy, or Alcoi in Valencian, is a city located in the province of Alicante, Spain, located only 54 kilometres from Alicante and 105 from Valencia.
The remarkable appearance of Alcoi, lying at the foot of Serra Mariola and the Font Roja natural park, with its bridges spanning the Barxell, Molinar and Serpis rivers, is indeed an attractive landscape characteristic of rural tourism on the Costa Blanca.
The urban district of Alcoi, the industrial cradle of the Region of Valencia, also offers typical squares and streets winding through the old town centre. Monuments and museums, Moor and Christian festivities and local cuisine combine in a hive of trade and business activities to make this town an appealing destination.
The square of Plaza de España is the nerve centre of the city. In the medieval quarter we can visit the old City Hall, the Archaeological Museum and the Museum of the Festivities of Moors and Christians. Going on the opposite direction, up San Nicolás street, we will discover the Modernist part of town. Its historic center has been declared of Cultural Interest.
