On one of the few cloudy days we opt to walk out on the port to the Museo Volvo Ocean Race. We are both familiar with the America's Cup, but do not know anything about the Volvo Ocean Race. We learn that it is a sailing race that goes around the world and was formerly named the Whitbread. Alicante was the starting point for the past three races and will also be the starting point for the next race, which occurs in 2018-2018. A documentary of the history of the race as well as the exhibits provide us with an enjoyable education.
On Friday after breakfast we head out. It is easy to get a taxi. Less than 20 minutes and 10€ later we are dropped off in front of the Museo. There's a very pretty cafe out front which beckons to us to pause and enjoy the pretty day, so we do.
The last museum we visit in Alicante is Museó Bellas-Artes Gravina (MUBAG), which is just six blocks from our flat. It is in a beautifully restored building and turns out to be an enjoyable hour of looking at mostly paintings and sculptures from Spanish artists, but there is also a collection of Oriental art which is on loan.
