Alicante Town Hall- The unmissable landmark
When you are in Alicante you just can’t ignore the chimes of Town hall bells. In every 15 minutes, you can hear its presence while touring the city. This Town hall is one of the greatest examples of 18th century Baroque Architecture. The building has two towers that rise to dizzying heights of 165 feet.
The earlier Muslim rulers put up a great resistance at this watch tower for the longest of time. There is an interior courtyard within the sky-high walls and a second storey. On the second floor, a reproduction of a Khamsa (a popular Muslim and North African image of an open hand) is on display.
