Calle San Miguel and Calle Salamanca Street

In the early twentieth century, Altea was being captured by such painters as Genaro Palau, Joaquin Mompó, … Since then, many painters, sculptors, engravers, ceramists, luthiers, musicians, actors, … have lived in our village.

This relationship with art started to manifest itself in some village streets. Some examples of this include the murals that decorated the interior of private houses, restaurants, façades and streets.
