History of Alicante
The Alicante region was probably inhabited around 3,000 years ago. Since the 9th century BC, the Phoenicians, a seafaring people who lived approximately in the area of today’s Lebanon, traded with the natives in this region. Around the year 325 BC, Greek settlers founded the city of Akra Leuke, which means white mountain. This probably meant the 166-meter-high Benacantil Mountain which is located in the center of Alicante.
In 201 BC, the settlement was taken over by the Romans and renamed Lucentum. In 718 the city was ruled by the Moors who built the Castillo de Santa Barbara on Mount Benacantil, until today one of the largest castles in Europe in terms of surface area. The Moors named the city Al Lucant, from which Alicante developed. In 1265 the area was conquered by King James I; he banished the Moors, incorporated the region into the Kingdom of Aragon and christianized it.
