View of Benidorm, touristic capital of the Costa Blanca (literally White Coast) in the Land of Valencia, Spain. The shot was taken from the Cross of Benidorm, located on the summit of the Sierra Helada. Benidorm is a town with 73,000 inhabitants throughout the year, but with a peak of over half a million in the summer season.

Within Spain, Benidorm is positioned third, behind Barcelona and Madrid in the total number of skyscrapers, but nevertheless, Benidorm has the most high-rise buildings per capita in the world.
