Next to the church is the Museum of Contemporary Art "MACA" and at the back ground you see the walls of the Santa Barbara Castle.
The inspiring architecture of the Basilica of Santa Maria is an opulent example of Valencian Gothic architecture, which features a spectacular interior decoration. From the (167 meter high) walls of the Santa Barbara Castle you can easily recognize it by its two towers and baroque portico. The 360° view at the top of the Castle is absolutely breathtaking.
The Castle has been the Soul of Alicante since the Bronze Age, Iberian and Roman times, although the origin of the current strength is to be found in the late ninth century. Before 1963, it was open to the public but it was in a state of neglect. That year, a 205 meter long tunnel and a 143 meter high elevator, inside the mountain, were opened and made a tour of the castle more accessible. The elevator can only be accessed on the Avenida de Jovellanos (parallel to the beachfront Postiguet). The entrance of the elevator is only a 3 minutes walkabout away…
