The North of our province is the roughest and most mountainous area. There we can find the last foothills of the Baetic Cordillera that meet the Mediterranean Sea at the easternmost point of the province: Cape Nao. This way we can find changing landscapes from the long Benidorm’s white sand beaches to the snow-capped peaks of Aitana which dominates the Guadalest Valley or the amazing stone mass of the Rock of Ifach in Calpe. We will go through all these landscapes first arriving to Benidorm by the sea in order to appreciate the extraordinary urban phenomenon that has produced the city with the world’s highest rate of skyscrapers per inhabitant. We will start at the highly awarded Poniente’s maritime promenade, designed by Carlos Ferrater. After, we will climb up to 1500m to enjoy the typical Alicante’s mountain food. And then, back to the sea where we will visit the radical works by the architect Ricardo Bofill in the village of Calpe, right in front its famous rock, where an unforgettable dinner will be waiting for us.
