San Francisco Street, known as “The Mushroom Street”, has become a must for tourists who visit us every day.
This street is located just 300 meters away from hotel Alamo, in the traditional center of Alicante. It is known for its decoration with mushrooms as trees, turning the street into a place like something out of a fantasy world.
The new image of San Francisco Street is full of history. The installation of these mushrooms started in late 2013 as an initiative of the City of Alicante order to give life and help the businesses of the city and the area which had begun to decline because of having become forgotten and with few businesses.
The San Francisco Street currently has more than 50 businesses including restaurants and shops of all kinds. For our guests, hotel Alamo recommends Mery Crocket (www.merycroket.com), a favourite for many people. There you can have both the offer from the daily menu, or croquettes and fresh juices. Very appetizing and fresh, they can be enjoyed on the beach, a park or simply as you wander through the city center. This is an alternative urban proposal! Ask us if you want to know more proposals like this.
This street has made headlines for its peculiarity in many newspapers in Europe. The design of the mushroom statues are the work of Sergio Martinez, an artist of the festivity of "hogueras", and this artistic work cost about 66,000 euros.
The current “Mushroom Street” has become a typical image of Alicante, a place you should not miss if you come to Alicante and the ideal spot to take a “selfie” next to these fun mushrooms.
From the hotel Alamo we invite you to discover this special place and many others in our city.
