Peter is a great little town. An interesting break away from the coast in Alicante. Lovely sleepy (during siesta in mid summer) town in mid-summer to walk around. Great walks in the surrounding country/hills/mountains.

This is very mch acommercial area servicing residents and holidaymkers from the outlying areas.
