Situated about 7 kilometres north of Benidorm on the Costa Blanca, Spain, the pretty coastal town of Altea has often been called 'the artists capital of the Costa Blanca', as the narrow streets of the old town are lined with the workshops and galleries of the artists and potters who have made their home there.
The picturesque town of Altea embodies both modern and old Spain. It is one of the most charming places on the Costa Blanca; sheltered by mountains and overlooking the sea. Altea old town itself has long been recognised as the Bohemian centre for musicians, artists and writers from all over Europe.
The old town is set on a hill above the waterfront.

2. Callosa is about 15 km.away. The route is extraordinary, with a backdrop of orange and nispero groves lining either side of the route. Close to Callosa d'En Sarrìa is its Nature Park, where the Fonts d'Algar are situated. The Fonts are known as the "Font de Fonts" (Spring of all Springs).
The road to the Fonts from Callosa is well signposted. On leaving Callosa you will see to your right a wonderful view of the valley's water canals and greenery of the Nature Park.
The Fonts themselves are a series of small springs which merge to form a beautiful waterfall and small lagoons of the "Fonts d'Algar" proper. There are lots of footpaths to explore and you will find many natural pools, all fed by the D'Algar waterfall. On a hot summer day the springs is an interesting alternative to the beach, as the spring waters are a steady 18°C. You can swim and relax in the shade of the trees.
The Fonts D'Algar has its own restaurant, plus barbecue and picnic facilities.
