The Museum of Water of Alicante is located in an emblematic area of the city, the Old Town, more specifically in the San Antón quarter, right at the foothill of the Benacantil mountainside, a representative symbol of the city of Alicante.
Located in a new construction building attached to Los Pozos de Garrigós and next to the pedestrian entrance to the Parque de la Ereta, it offers visitors a complete vision of the history of water in the city of Alicante, with unique panoramic views over Alicante that are enviable both for the impressive and colourful display of the streets that surround it, and for the reflections of the Mediterranean Sea.
Over the top of the hillside of the Benacantil Mountain and 166 metres above sea level, is where the most emblematic monument of the city of Alicante is found. A place with spectacular views, perfect for learning about the history and evolution of the city, as well as about its resilience.
The Old Town of the city is formed by numerous places that can be visited over the course of a day out walking. From the Co-cathedral of San Nicolás, the Santa Cruz quarter and the Chapel of San Roque until the Plaza del Mar, the calle Labradores or the multitude of sun terraces where visitors can rest.
One of the most emblematic quarters of the city of Alicante is where the castle of Santa Barbara can be found, the Benacantil Mountain, the bull ring of Alicante and the cultural centre Las Cigarreras (the old Tabacalera).
Located in the historical centre of Alicante, at the foothill of the Benacantil mountainside, we find the Parque de la Ereta, one of the youngest parks in Alicante, surrounded by nature, wild flowers and indigenous bird life, and in which their visitors enjoy the best views of the whole city.
