“Great views of alicante”
Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

Although we didn't find out too much about the history of the castle the view of the surrounding area was absolutely incredible and there were plenty of places to lounge around and enjoy the sun.

“Prominent site”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Overlooking Alicante. On top of the mountain. Too many steps to climb, so only admired it from a distance.
