The summer heat has finally arrived to Alicante. As much as we love spending time on the beach sunbathing, sometimes we need to escape to a shadow to cool down. In this post we recommend some of the best parks in Alicante to rest and enjoy the quiteness.
Next to the Esplanade of Spain and right in front of Hotel Alamo is the oldest park and one of the most visited Alicante. It is characterized by its ancient ficus originating in Australia, covering the entire park and creating a pleasant shade on hot days to stroll around or relax with a good book. Inside you can find several fountains, sculptures of lions and even a map of Spain in stone.
Where? The Canalejas walk
The dream of every photographer, this park is located in the foothills of Santa Barbara Castle with impressive views of Barrio de Santa Cruz, Cathedral of San Nicolas and the Mediterranean Sea. Ereta covers nearly 7 hectares with native vegetation, terraces, shaded areas, a panoramic restaurant and a large central square. We recommend you visit the park without hurry, to sit and enjoy the sound of the fountains and watch the most spectacular views of Alicante.
Parque La Ereta
Where? The Santa Barbara Castle
Known as the Pantheon of Quijano, this park is one of the most emblematic of Alicante. The stone mausoleum located in the center of the garden is devoted to Trino González de Quijano, governor of Alicante. This man died of cholera in 1854, refusing to leave the city out of solidarity to all the sick. The monument is a fitting tribute to him and represents the charity, temperance, courage and faith of Quijano.
A little farther from the city center, this park is perfect for the elderly to relax in and for children to play outdoors.

Where? Santa Teresa square, next to the bullring
