Alicante

Alicante is a popular city with tourists in the Alicante Province in the Valencia Region of Spain.
Most of the town consists of 1960’s flat-roofed buildings, which make it reminiscent of a British inner-city council estate. This effect is further enhanced by the prostitutes and drug-dealers who operate in the streets parallel to the sea-front.
