  • The mountain overlooks the city of Alicante and with Castle on its Summit is the only attraction that in Alicante merits a visit. The mount itself is at the end a small hill of 166 meters very little green and rocky with many cicadas singing boop. You can walk up with several trails, the shortest about 700 meters with a vertical drop of 10% is the road along which they climb even the cars and the tourist bus and tram stop Mark Castillo behind the elevator. The first 200 metres down the road then starts the sidewalk but everything under the Sun. In August the Council takes temperatures views behind Playa del Postiguet. Open from 10.00 at 19.20 costs 2.70 per head x a climb of 20 seconds. It's not so much but we have three kids and we spent 13.50 euros! To charge for children over 1 year it seems unfair and free over 65! Anyway there's a vending machine to pay for the elevator so you create the queue because there's always someone who falls asleep in front of and then tail x climb into the elevator holding a few people.
