Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Originally built in 1557 to defend and protect the local fisherman by a garrison of 33 men and eventually transferred over to the council (To be used as offices) and rebuilt. Located inside is a small chapel and museum. During our visit, the museum was closed and chapel (Known as Virgin of Loreto or Capilla Yirgen De Loreto) was free to enter, as is the courtyard. A nice find and worth a quick stop if your in the area. Access may not be immediately obvious. We needed to walk around to what might be described as the back of the fort for access, as what looked like the front door was locked.

This is the main historic building of Santa Pola which is actually the city centre.
Lovely building and surounding which is the home of the Sea City Museum. It is also the home of Santa Pola patron on her lovely and cute chapel (Capilla de la Virgen de Loreto).
If there is something happening in Santa Pola, it is definitely not too far from El Castillo

We strolled through the centre of Santa Pola having wandered around the Port area on a warm October evening. Lovely buildings with a chapel and a museum. Christmas decorations were just being put up - bet it looks lovely then! Nice place to wander.

Castillo-Fortaleza: beautifully kept fort, museums, a place to spend paseo time, an evening stroll outside. On fiesta days it really comes alive with booming of cannons: re-enactment of Moors versus Christians, participants all dressed up in Moorish garb or sequined splendour; explosions of fireworks in daytime; even medieval garb in Medieval Market; Semana Santa solemnity at Easter. Fireworks spectacular & competition, the many fiestas they have annually; medieval fairs, and more. I have gait/walking challenges (stroke), all sightseeing has to be well-researched and not overly taxing; I wear a legbrace. All fiestas possible with my unsteady walking gait. Contact ayuntamiento for timetables for annual fiestas.

There's a courtyard inside the walls, with a chapel and a couple of museums. There's not a lot to see of the castle itself though.

You can find many cafes and restaurants ouside the castle courtyard, in the "plaza de la Glorieta". You can also check in for some painting exhibition sometimes and a beautiful litlle chapel. Spanish people take a drink there in the evening while kids are playing.

We stumbled across this beautiful castle right in the middle of the town while eating out on the square one night

Went when there was a medieval market within the grounds. Great atmosphere in a truly authentic setting.
