  • In love with this place. Very nice. Breathtaking views. Streets cookies with beautiful craftsmanship. Several interesting museums, although we only visited the microgiant and phenomenal. It is one of the towns most beautiful of Spain they say and it is true. Highly recommended.

  • A return to the Castell of Guadalest, must visit location in the mountains with magnificent view over the dam at the top and if you have a good view you can see the Mediterranean off by a good sunny weather and blue sky. Do if we stayed there.

  • About 15 km from Benidorm, between the mountain, a small village beautiful, charming and full of museums. Very quiet, especially if you go soon. The ascent to the castle is worth, the views are great. Visit the castle itself costs €4 for adults and € 2 for children. You can admire views of the dam without entering the Castle directly. A "municipal" parking is at the entrance of Guadalest (2€) Although we managed to park a tad more forward without paying. It is worth to walk the streets. There were a couple of photographers taking pictures of tourists who then sold to €5 or keychain. At the exit, about 2 km there is a road leading to the dam.

  • Great option for a half-day tour. The views on the top of the castle are stunning. Also, Parking is available for 3€ few minutes from the main entrance. The castle entrance is 4€ and is included in the price a visit to the Orduña House which was burnt down and plundered during the War of the Spanish Succession. This house seemed to me more interesting than the castle itself.
  • A great days travel, with stunning views on top of the Castle! Nice place to take in the valley. There are places around for food and drink which are fine, but best to try and have a proper meal elsewhere.
  • Fabulous, views, history, and drive to it! Just make sure that you are able to climb many stairs. Love the museum aspect of it.
  • Amazing castle and environment. Well maintained. Great views. Entrance is not free. Price is 4E. It can be very crowdy during high season. Best to go earliest possible. Castle opens at 10.15 - it was worth the ride
  • Great house & castle. Small entry fee. Brilliant views across the countryside.
