This place should be visited if you are in the area. The experience of walking through the narrow passage into the castle is only the beginning. The stunning views, the beautiful buildings and the history are a beautiful experience.

You can get bus 16. 7.50euros return and that gives you 2 hours to spend rambling round village lots of shops and bars to choose from. Stunning views during journey and lots to see while there would thoroughly recommend a visit

One of a number of attractions in Guadalest, all are worthy of a visit. The town is walled and entrance is via a hole (gate) in the mountain. Tourist tat shops have sprung up on the perimeter but are easily ignored.
