Parador de Javea Hotel

Alicante – An attractive coastal city in the southeast of the Costa Blanca, and the capital of the province, is the base for the AGM tour. The main hotel, where the evening events will be held, has stunning sea views and is close to the old town, castle and many friendly restaurants.

Melia Alicante Hotel

Alicante Province covers an area of about 5000 square kilometres and has a climate which is strikingly diverse for its small area. The true mediterranean climate is found only in the most northern parts and the more mountainous regions. Most of the province, along the coastal plain and in the flat lands in the south, has a semi-arid climate, with very long hot summers, dry mild winters and very scarce rainfall, typically below 300 millimetres per year. Thus, natural vegetation varies widely, from pine woods in the north to matorral scrublands in the south. However, long-established irrigation systems mitigate, to some extent, the difficulties in the cultivation of crops and garden plants in the fertile soils of the south. The aim of the programme of events is to illustrate this variety of landscapes and the gardens that have been created amongst them.
