Alicante

Alicante is a Spanish seaport on the country’s Mediterranean coastline. It covers the area around Alicante, Elche and Albacete. The
hinterland of the Port of Alicante continues through to Madrid and
includes the industrial areas along the Vinalopó river. The province’s transport infrastructure means increased commercial capacity with the port also boasting a modern extension with a quayside express container train and rail terminal. The port also has two container terminals which are able to handle 10 million tonnes of cargo and a dock designed for cruise liners measuring up to 350 metres in length. It comes under the authority of state agency Puertos del Estado. It is managed locally by Autoridad Portuaria de Alicante.
