Tips from locals
Pedestrian only streets, an evening Arts Market, wonderful restaurants and shops open late at night make up this iconic hilltop old town. There are parking lots nearby or a tourist train can take you from the waterfront.
This picturesque little white town is supposedly one of the most beautiful along the Spanish coast, retaining its own unique Spanish charm. Did you know that the name comes from the Moorish 'Althaya', which means 'health to all'?
