“Moorish Castle”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Fascinating castle in a beautiful town. Well worth a visit with beautiful views. Kids would love it but not for people who can't climb steep stairs.

“Well worth the walk”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

Probably 'over renovated' but to visit it is to see just how effective it would have been with massive views for 360 degrees.
Dont miss the museum and ask for the one and only English translation account of the exhibits

Beautiful castle and location. It also has a museum with lots of interesting bits and pieces in. A lot of steps but well worth it!

“A quiet corner of Spain.”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

Small village on a hilltop with winding streets with bars and restaurants. The weather was sunny and we were able to lunch on the terrace. Excellent. Welcoming owners and staff.
