It’s ruins. Not special

Not worth the climb and walk. I’d pull up in the car and vow. What’s special is the fact it’s built... read more

Worth a look for views alone

Ten minutes walk from the lovely town of Lanjaron, the remains of the castle is an old ruin, which has had some restoration work done recently. There is a fine car park, and amazing views from the balcony. And you can walk back through a very nice park on the edge of town. The is plenty of history associated with the originally Moorish castle, and it's on the route of some of the fine walks around Lanjaron, which are displayed on street signage.

The fall of this small castle on an outcrop at the gateway to the Alpujarras marked the end of the magnificent Moor culture in Andalucia. It has been partially restored providing excellent views across Lanjaron and is easy to walk to from the town. Don't drive to the car park at the base or your will miss enjoying the historic atmosphere that people have experienced for centuries.

Not too difficult a climb as close to the town. A ruin but safe to visit as barriers in place. If you are in the area something to see but wouldn't come here specially.

Nice view from this old castle in a very cosy little town. Looks closed but the gates are open so it just to enter.
