Hey guys,

I used to have a thread to post the pics of all my trips but I can't seem to find it, so I've decided to start a new one and update it at least twice a week. I hope you all enjoy it.

Location: Alicante, Spain
Time: May, 2017
Description: Alicante
Amongst the most notable features of the city are the Castle of Santa Bárbara, which sits high above the city, and the port of Alicante. The latter was the subject of bitter controversy in 2006–2007 as residents battled, successfully, to keep it from being changed into an industrial estate.

The Santa Bárbara castle is situated on Mount Benacantil, overlooking the city. The tower (La Torreta) at the top, is the oldest part of the castle, while part of the lowest zone and the walls were constructed later in the 18th century.
