La Explanada de Espana – Alicante street with a mosaic on the road
La Explanada de Espana is the main wide promenade in Alicante. It has been paved with nearly 7 million tiles that form a mosaic characteristic of Spain. Created in 1867, it is the brainchild of architect Jose Guardiola Pico. The pattern reflects the waves of the Mediterranean Sea. The mosaic is composed in such a way that one has the illusion that some of the tiles form mountains and some form holes. The promenade, stretching here between Plaza del Mar and Canalejas, is surrounded by four rows of beautiful palm trees.
