Just outside Benidorm lies this gorgeous little village with a mountain top castle, well worth the modest entry fee of 4 Euro. It was raining hard when we were there but it was still a great visit, the village is full of quality gift shops,...More

The sun took a break so we headed off to Guadalest. After a bit of a ropey drive up a very windy CV-70 we arrived ahead of the bus tours. The Tourist Office guy was super helpful. We wandered through the House of Orduna which...More

First visited Guadalest 13 years ago. It will be a lot sooner for my 3rd visit! Absolutely love it - but I can imagine it would get too crowded in the summer. The 4 euro entry charge to the Castle is a bargain. So much...More

The self guided tour round the house and rooms followed by the castle walls / tower is well worth the 4 Euro entry (3 if you are 65 or over). Great views over the valley with plenty of photo opportunities.

So much to do and see in this beautiful village. Castle, old houses, free museums, shops, cafes, parks, walks, steps, steps and steps to reach spectacular views of a stunning lake/reservoir. Picturesque village well worth visiting
