Lucentum Archaelogical Site (Calle de Zeus, La Albufereta, Alicante) — Located just 3 km. from the city centre, in the area known as Tossal de Manises, are the major archaeological remains of the Roman city of Lucentum, or ancient Alicante. This is an important reference point for the Ibero-Roman period. The site covers 5 hectares, half of which correspond to the ancient city itself. This is one of the largest archaeological sites in the Valencia region. Note: during the Summer, nighttime cultural activities and trips are organized here.
