Lucentum

Archaeological Site in Alicante

The ruins of the Roman town of Lucentum, a forerunner of Alicante, lie about 3km east of the centre in the locale of Tossal de Manises. Excavations have revealed a rich wealth of pottery. You can make out clearly defined streets as well as bathhouses, the forum, a large house with columned courtyard and various other dwellings. Bus 9 or 21 will get you here, or you could jump on the coastal tram.
