Discovered a lovely walk all the way to the top of the castle. Lovely walk from the beach through some Japanese style gardens and up to the top. Great views of Alicante. Worth it everytime

Great views of the city and doesn’t cost anything to get in (just the lift price if you don’t fancy the walk up). A really nice place to have a wander, understand a bit about the castles history and take some pictures of the view.

We walked up to the castle through the old town, which was beautiful. The castle makes a great half day trip whilst in Alicante and affords stunning views.

This castle perched on the top of a hill has lots to offer. The walk up is an experience, will get your heart racing, the views along the way and at the top are exhilarating and the atmosphere is one of adventure and majesty. Our kids had a lot of fun exploring the nooks, crannies, the jagged rocks, stony grounds, and the vast spaces. Excellent and not to be missed.

Great advice from TripAdvisor about using the lift up and down to the castle as I broke a leg badly a year ago and doubt I could have walked down to the town having spent an hour going around the castle with its spectacular panoramic views. Lovely coffee shop with a sea view. It is fairly hilly with cobbles so difficult for wheelchairs or anyone with crutches/ walking difficulties. A pity there is not a film to give you a potted history of the castle. Well worth €2.70 charge for lift- castle FREE!
