This place is for people who can walk a lot. There is a long walk up hill to get to the castle but worth the walk. Do not try if you have difficulty walking

Steep walk but worth it for the views. Free to visit but a good walk from the town . If staying in Fuengirola one could easily miss visiting th e castle because it is at the end of the beach walk .

I have been up to the castle many times on my visits to Feungirola. I have even managed (once) to get inside the castle!!!! Great views also from the inside. Apart from the views and the nice little walk up theres not much else there. However I always have a walk up each time we visit as I love walking... More

The walk up to the castle is a brisk one, but the view at the top is well worth it. It's free to enter and check out a piece of history. There's also a medieval fair within the grounds every year, which is great.

I used to walk around this area with friends as has great views but not any more. We've been offered drugs on numerous occasions and my friends car was broken into when we returned to her car in the car park. It's such a shame as it's a pretty place but has become seedy!!

Located just beside our hotel the castle provided a perfect spot to sit and take in the views of the surrounding countryside. We were unable to explore it as we might have wished as it was closed on the day of our visit but I enjoyed wandering around the outer walls and sitting in the sun on the ample seating... More

This was our 3rd visit to Fuengirola and the 1st time we have visited the Castle. It took us roughly an hour to stroll up the winding path and walk around the grounds. There isn't a lot to see in the Castle itself but the views are fantastic! I would recommend a bottle of water on a warm day and... More

The remains of this old arab castle is not much more than the wall to walk and one tower to climb for slim people. The view of the area around the castle is very nice and panoramic. The park surrounding the castle is also nice.
