  • Be sure to visit the Castle and the old town of ksativo. We recommend to friends online, most popular pages, his nenajti, although passed castles, cat included in top 10 places to visit in the Alicante area, but they pale in comparison to the Castle Ksativo. The castle is situated on top of the 2 mountains long wall, with walls offers beautiful views!

  • Very affordable adult and children under 9 stay free. As we have indicated, at 14:30 the entrance was free. We have seen it very fast, but we have not left almost nothing of the higher Castle without seeing.

  • If you can, pick a sunny day for your visit - the view is really amazing and lets you appreciate the castle's strategic importance during its days in service. From the town the castle looks truly spectacular with its buildings and walls covering most of the mountain ridge. Illuminated at night this is impression is even multiplied. If you are healthy and have two legs you should park your car at the foot of the hill and make the short walk up the hill. Approaching the castle it becomes a bit clearer that not all (or actually not much) of what you see from the valley is really original and old. Much rebuilding has gone into reconstructing the walls and some buildings - it is understandable but somehow I felt a bit deceived :-) The entry fee was 2,40 and very fair. The walk up and around the Major Castle took a bit over an hour - mostly because we were marvelling the view from the various lookout points. The Minor Castle took only half an hour or less - there is not much to see except (again) the views. Altogether absolutely worth a visit especially if you have kids. There is a picnic area inside the castle if you bring your own stuff. Enjoy!
  • A truly amazing place, a must visit place. Awe inspiring views and 2.40€ entrance! unbelievable.
  • It's a lovely walk to the castle from the town, and it sometimes felt like a pilgrimage as you gradually passed different sections of the castle until you finally reached the fortress at the top. Incredible views of the surrounding region and adequate facilities for those wishing to get a bite to eat or in need of a toilet break. A small fee of around €2 is needed to access one half of the castle, however the rest of it is free to explore. Definitely worth it. There's also a tourist bus runs that regularly to and from the castle.
  • Another must see... Amazing day out. But, be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes.
  • Great views from the top. Awesome location. It's possible to drive all the way up to the castle.
