If you are down at the beach walk you must make the effort and go up the stairs to square at the church. It’s amazing beautiful and view is stunning. You find lots off shops and restaurant up there.

It’s a nice break from the beach and boulevard. All white plastered houses with lovely small streets and little restaurants and shops. Loads of tourists but hey... I was one of them. Beautiful views across the shoreline, really great way to spend the afternoon and...More

What a stunning place. The old town is full of atmosphere with beautiful views to the surrounding area. There are lots of bars, restaurants and a great shopping area with a variety of individual boutiques. Definitely worth the climb to the top.

The old town in Altea is a great place to spend some time. Lots of narrow, cobbled streets with a great selection of unique boutiques and some very nice restaurants. It's not much good from an accessibility standpoint, because it's virtually impossible to get anywhere...More

As we ambled down from our hotel in the hills,we noticed this magnificent domed roof in all its splendour,a beautiful blue and white structure which certainly sets The Old Town alight. Worth a trip just to see this wonderful building.

Must visit if you are staying in or around Altea. Nice walk up the hill (some steps involved). Beautiful views of the sea and Altea Town (and glimpses of Benidorm). Lots of restaurants, shops and ice cream places. There was a lot of hustle and...More

"Muy turistic" as I overheard many people say as we sat having a drink in the church square. They were right. It seemed a shame that this very pretty old town was completely over-run with visitors (and yes, we were tourists also) that nobody could...More

White small buildings, narrow steep streets, lots of shops, restaurants and souvenir shops are all to be found in the heart of Altea. It takes around 2 hours to have a proper walk around the old town and then you can rest in the shade...More

I've only walked up. There is car access but streets are very narrow stepped and some are cobbled. Car access might be for residents only. Tourists walk up. Best to contact tourist info. They are very helpful. Try the one... More
