Gain an understanding of the many cultures that have influenced the gastronomy of Alicante and then dine on a meal that reflects some of those impacts. As you will discover while browsing the city’s esteemed Archaeological Museum, the Greeks, Phoenicians, Romans and Moors have all left their marks on Alicante since its founding in 325 BC. You will also see artifacts from more modern civilizations that reveal how the city has transitioned into its present state. The 16th and 17th centuries were particularly volatile and to protect Alicante from the invading pirates security towers were built along the coast to protect the residents. You will pass some of these soaring stone towers on the way to the lunch venue. The main dish will be paella, prepared Alicante-style.
