Spain’s third-largest city has a unique mix of modern and classic art, urban beaches and Iberian-influenced cuisine. a bafflingly futuristic arts complex and even its own Holy Grail.

The coastal city’s splendid setting – amid rugged mountains and glorious orange groves is blessed with fresh produce and seafood all year round.
