Castillo de Santa Bárbara is one of the best attractions in Alicante. Located above the town, it seems to sprout from a rocky outcrop overlooking the sea. The castle is open to the public for self-guided visits, as well as guided tours. Tourists are astounded by the castle's ancient halls, its fascinating history, and the stunning panoramic views. From this vantage point, the outlook stretches over the town, along the coastline, and to the hills in the north. Visitors can see La Torreta, the old keep; the splendid reception hall of Philip II; and the Revellín del Bon Repós rampart. Temporary exhibitions are also held at the castle throughout the year. Another place to visit is the Museo Arqueológico de Alicante, an archaeological museum. Visitors may take a journey through 100,000 years of history. The collection covers prehistory; the classical period of antiquity with Greek, Roman, and Iberian artifacts; and the Middle Ages. Themed galleries include those dedicated to Iberian culture, Roman civilization, and the medieval period. Highlights of the collection include the assortment of ancient coins, a figure of the goddess Tanit, and the Iberian ceramics.
