About Altea

Altea is a little town that looks as if somebody had cut it off the fairy-tale world and added the Bernia Mountains as the background. The town is distinctive with dazzling white little houses that are spread up to the church named La Mare de Déu del Consol. The church has a very interesting copula, decorated with blue and white ceramic tiles.
Altea has always attracted painters, writers and musicians. In the 1960s and 1970s it was nicknamed the "town of bohemians". There are lots of romantic, narrow lanes with charming corners, many galleries and art workshops. They supply the traditional fair with decorative pieces and practical things, too. The fair takes place from July to September at the square near the church (from 7 p.m. to 1. a.m.)
