  • Medieval fortress near Benidorm, you can get there by bus, which runs twice a day, beautiful views of the lakes and mountains.

  • It is a 40 minutes drive from Alicante inland, i.e., jacket required. A small village of dream built on the slope of a mountain that preserves the legacy of its Arabic origin, palacio de Orduña family who presides over it, and 7 small museums of things as curious as miniatures, Saltcellars and pepper pots... I've already visited everything since I usually come on a regular basis. I recommend the Orduña House, they are 4 euros and you will see very careful detail what life in Guadalesc. Only one drawback, the food. There are few sites and quite expensive. Keep in mind that it is very touristic, in high season, due to so many people, he loses much charm.
