Cobbled paths and stairs lead to the center of the white city. The old part of Altea (the center of the city) is located around the Catholic Church of Nuestra Señora del Consuelo (the symbol of Altea) on the top of the hill. The beaches of Altea are mostly stony and pebbly, so in the peak of the tourist season they are not crowded with people unlike Benidorm.
