An old castle. Used today for music festivals and other happenings. Not much to see, but if you're in the area, it's worth o visit. A landmark for Fuengirola.

An interesting castle. Near the beach. Carpark to the front and rear. Sometimes has special events ie medieval market or beer festival. Many concerts held here during summer months.

I trek all the way up (not too hard, so don't be scared) just for a sake of doing so. I sat down for a while and realised it was a perfect timing as the sun was about to set in less than an hour....More

We went to the Thomas Helmig Concert, great to use an historical location for a music concert. The only negative was the price level in the bar, prices were more than the double of the level outside the castle.

Nice hike with great views so good if your keeping fit or love photography but castle was shut unfortunately. They are also renovating the beach route up. Looks like some good concerts in there in July.

Not for the unfit to climb from ground level up to the castle areas. Could not access the interior as the castle was closed - not advertised as such at ground level.
