Visits Inland

Apart from places mentioned in the text, there are many interesting places to visit and things to see further inland which may be reached by taxi, bus or, in some cases, by rail. The narrow gauge FEVE runs from the north station of Alicante to Dénia and puts on the 'Lemon Express' for tourists during summer - an expedition which includes a bottle of 'champagne'. Suggestions for other expeditions can be obtained from the various information offices but the following are worth considering: Lorca, a very picturesque old town; Murcia, the capital city of the province of the same name, which has interesting churches, museums and art galleries; Orihuela, with an old church and valuable paintings; Jijona, where the nougat-like sweet turrón is made and with a ruined Moorish castle; and Alcoy, an old Visigoth town with many ancient remains.
