Today during my weekly bilingual stroll through Alicante, we stumbled upon a door next to the cathedral. It was open for the first time that I’ve seen, and we left the street full of noise and bars for a small pool of peace: a magical little courtyard filled with statues of saints, old coats of arms leaning on the wall, and the looming shapes of the pasos platforms waiting for Semana Santa. In the center of the courtyard was a trickling fountain covered with jasmine flowers, filling the air with their scent.
