Stunning! This was set high on a mountain not too far away from the castle....very peaceful and stunning. On the way back down we stopped at the castle and had a look around the surrounding area, which was beautiful and quiet.

Fantastic views from the Stupa across the Costa del Sol. Interesting inside the Stupa which expains part of the religion. You can also attend meditation sessions at set times.
