Nestled in the mountains and only accessable by a tunnel is an old fort that is just full of history and charm. There are quite a few steps to get there but it is not a hard walk. The view is amazing, the people are...More

What a wonderful place to visit! A castle on a bright blue lake. The views are breathtaking. I think it was one of my best tours in Spain. I visited a castle, then drove to the lake and had a short hike along the shore....More

A nice trip up to the village from Benidorm. Plenty of restaurants and loads of shops for buying gift. Well worth the visit. There was four of us and we found it best to hire a taxi. Just 20 euro per head from El Campello.,...More

It is a cool place to visit. Just getting here via CV-70 and down again on CV-755 was good fun. The place itself is of course a huge "tourist-trap", but 2EURO for parking is not bad at all. Some of the restaurants there are also...More

Can imagine it gets very busy during July and August but in May it was manageable. We were a big party with young children, there was lots to see and the village and views are magical. Lovely day trip

This is a lovely village, some nice craft shops and good local museums. We did go on a bit of a windy day in April, but it was still great and the views along the valley were breath taking.

A lovely moderate climb up to the centre of the village where cafes offer coffee and cakes and the most marvellous views. Would recommend this wholeheartedly. It is truly beautiful

This place should be visited if you are in the area. The experience of walking through the narrow passage into the castle is only the beginning. The stunning views, the beautiful buildings and the history are a beautiful experience.
