  • We have visited the castle several times on our trips to Villena, this structure is so splendid perched on top of it's defensive hill, not a lot to see inside, but several floors including roof and tu...  more »
  • We came here without knowing there is a guided tour but when we arrived we set out to join a group. For 3o we had the entrance with guide who made us all the way to the castle telling us all its history and curiosities. It was super interesting to do so because we'll always remember. It lasted 1 hour (it didn't get long for anything), and then with time to take pictures at your air.

  • Superb place with two helpful, friendly and informative staff. Extremely good value for the guided tour. Ours in Spanish, not sure what other languages are available. Information about the site also available and accessible in English. Lovely views from top of castle although 100 plus steps may limit those with mobility problems.
  • Beautiful castle rich in history. Guided tours only and you need to buy your tickets at the tourist info office. Our guide was great and he did the tour in both Spanish and English.
  • Great castle. Well worth the £3 entry. Buy your ticket at the tourist info by the car park.
  • Unbelievably cheap at 3 euros for a one hour guided tour. Muy muy barato! Our guide, she was brilliant and spoke Spanish slow enough so we could understand easily, although she spoke English if we had wanted. Highly recommended.
  • Lovely castle. It's well maintained and has great views. The only setback was the guided tours, you can't just wander around inside the castle, need to be booked.
