We went to here on a whim having seen the castle from the distance. We arrived mid morning, before the coach parties and had a marvellous time exploring the village and castle. I’d recommend it to any family as all of us enjoyed something the...More

Just outside Benidorm lies this gorgeous little village with a mountain top castle, well worth the modest entry fee of 4 Euro. It was raining hard when we were there but it was still a great visit, the village is full of quality gift shops,...More

This gem of a visit is not far from Benidorm, but the drive out was full of winds and bends and it went waaaay up into the mountains. The castle was great to walk up and around with a good written informative tour of the...More

The sun took a break so we headed off to Guadalest. After a bit of a ropey drive up a very windy CV-70 we arrived ahead of the bus tours. The Tourist Office guy was super helpful. We wandered through the House of Orduna which...More

First visited Guadalest 13 years ago. It will be a lot sooner for my 3rd visit! Absolutely love it - but I can imagine it would get too crowded in the summer. The 4 euro entry charge to the Castle is a bargain. So much...More

Spent the afternoon in this town, it’s was lovely! Plenty of steps to climb if you want to visit the top of the castle but lots of little shops if you decide the climb if not for you. Many choices for a snack, drinks or...More

The self guided tour round the house and rooms followed by the castle walls / tower is well worth the 4 Euro entry (3 if you are 65 or over). Great views over the valley with plenty of photo opportunities.
