Altea is a town and municipality located in the province of Alicante, Spain, north of Alicante on the section of Mediterranean coast called the Costa Blanca.At present, the economy of Altea is based on tourism, which started to grow in the 1950s because of its good weather, beaches and the labyrinthine streets with whitewashed house-fronts that characterize the town. Step off the beaten path and head to Playa de Xeraco and Mirador Cronistas de Espana. Explore Altea's surroundings by going to Gandia (Palau Ducal dels Borja Gandia & Museu Faller of Gandia). There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Parroquia Nuestra Senora del Consuelo, gear up at Gear Rentals, walk around Parque Natural de la Serra Gelada, and get engrossed in the history at Museo Vehiculos Historicos Valle De Guadalest.
