Alicante

Please could anyone tell me how to get from the tram stop on the front in Alicante to the Castle on the hill, am I right in thinking it is the Castle of Santa Barbara, we noticed it last year and would like to visit, but no idea if it is within walking distance.

Yes it is Santa Barbara, just walk down the promenade away from the marina until you get to a walkway across the road, you cross here turn left and the entrance is just a little way down on your right, it's only a 5-10 minutes walk.

You then walk down the tunnel and get the lift to the top, it's well worth a visit as the views are wonderful.

You don't pay to get in, you just pay a small amount, (sorry can't remember the exact price but only a few euros) for the lift.

Regards,

Jean.

Thank you very much for the reply, pleased it isn't far, we had thought it looked to be too far away to walk in the time we would have there. Pleased to see there is a lift too. Looking forward to going in June.

We have never walked up, afraid we are not that healthy! keep an eye out for foil 60's tucked in nooks and crannies, we hid them up when we went with grandchildren for my husband's birthday, we took them last year for our wedding anniversary and they were disappointed they couldn't find any.

We are going again in July with family who have never been so no doubt we will take them for a visit.

Regards,

Jean.
