This is worth the walk, showing the whole view of both Levante and Poniente beaches. Often, film crews are around, and not just for Itv! Nice gin and tonic with a breeze and a view, is a favourite pastime for me in one of the cafes at the top.

Intriguing place to visit, when you get your breath back :) 72 steps up from one side or a steep incline from the other, but well worth it. Fabulous views, but I would have liked to be able to get a little more information about it.

As previous reviews, the views are stunning, it is a magical spot. However, there is not a lot to see after the views so don't make a special trip, fit it in if your passing.

Fantastic place to go to see all of Benidorm. You can see both beaches from here. In the summer months you get artists here. A must if you visit Benidorm

Place del Castell is a lovely place to visit in the evening, lit up it's quite magical. Stand on the terrace and you can see the lights twinkling around the bay. This is the location of an outrageous scene with Tim Healy 'Lesley' from the TV series 'Benidorm'

We were there with friends in mid November, the colours of the pillars and balustrades just lend themselves for taking pictures, the views are tremendous of both bays and all the far off hills to the South tho it's a bit of a walk up past the Church which itself is worth a look or up the steps from the...

A lovely looking part of Benidorm, well preserved and maintained with wonderful views. Cafe Bars available here as well as some local craft stalls. Worth the uphill walk just for the views alone
