Visited the Castle during the Medieval Market held there Sept 12 - 16, 2018. Beatiful views of the area and the market itself provided for some great vendors offering artisanal handcrafts (jewelry, ceramics, woodwork, leather, even teas, spices, candy, bread and a few food vendors)....More

The area is pretty nice and you have a nice view. The castle is empty though, I would recommend it on the evening so You can see the lights of Fuengirola.

Walked by this often and it is a very cool site. Paths up to the castle atop the hill are varied to suit all forms of hikers. The entire exterior of the castle photographs very well. Great landmark!
