“Fascinating world heritage site”

Reviewed 9 July 2012

We have been lucky enough to visit this site a couple of times. This time, with our daughter who insisted on going to the very top. Stunning views. Always nervous of the very long winding road and hairpin bends. Reminiscent of the story of Brigadoon.

Wonderful museums and gift shops.

Still solid after the centuries of wear. Built on a peak.

when in alicante provence of spain and when you have got your hire car, a must trip, is to the world heritage site of Guadalest. A church and bell tower perched precariously carefully and balanced on the pinacle of the rugged mountians , The last and only village never to be contolled by the Moors. Go in early spring and enjoy the breath-taking views to the south the Mediteranean, to the east the pale blue lakes from the mining of the chalky limestone hills, to the north the Pyranean Mountains The almost snake like alpine roads that wind up the mountains for 20 plus kilometers that finanally take you to this magical village a joy to experience, a small commercialised area but so much more to experience see it and all the world seems so small

Well worth a visit if you are visiting the Costa Blanca, Spain. Situated at the top of a mountain with fantastic views of the surrounding area. It is a bit of a climb to the top of the castle from the car park but is well worth the effort. Plenty of eating places and shops catering for the tourist trade but our favourite is the big Lladro shop which we could easily spend hours (and lots of money) in!

We have been here several times on a day trip out from Benidorm/Altea.

Just a short drive away and your in the mountains, Steeped in history. Breath taking views of the mountains and valleys.

Quite a steep climb to the top but worth every minute.

The small places to eat and drink are great and the shops selling local arts and crafts are amazing.

Well worth a vist.
