Fab views from the top of the hill. Great to walk around and see a bit of the history of the region. Not bad for being almost 1000 years old! Also fun is seeing the remains of the even older Roman structures at the bottom...More

We went when there was nothing happening (very silly!) Small climb to the top of the hill. Worth it for some nice views, but the castle is hardly breathtaking.

You should go there if you want to get good holiday pictures and see seafront area of Fuengirola. Vieraile täällä jos haluat hienoja maisemakuvia. Seikkailtiin linnan raunioissa. Lyhyt matka kävellä rantakadulta. Kävelimme linnalta suoraan ostoskeskukseen, sinne myös tosi lyhyt matka. Kivoja pieniä kahviloita/ravintoloita linnan alapuolella.

Im sure it's amazing as an event venue but for a castle to go look round, learn a bit of history etc it sucked.

Atop of a hill in the south-western Fuengirola. Relatively short walk from the beach, 20 minutes from the central town (bus/train stations). Good views to the beach and to the town. Castle is actively used for major concerts and exhibitions.
