The Moors last stand in Southern Spain was here. As a historical site it's worth considering. Access is easy but the ruin is not kept well. A strange rail has been mounted lately for security and it does not do the place justice.
Fear of height is an issue as the castle is perched on a steep ravine.

It was a great view! The castle was nice but really was not at all spectacular and there was no one there to really tell you the history.

the view was amazing and quite an easy walk and is next to an amazing park with huge eucalyptus trees! very relaxing and the park had its own bar where the tapas was very good and the staff were brilliant and there was entertainment almost every day.

Sited on a crag overlooking a gorge outside of Lanjaron ,the castle is accessible with good views all around the Sierra Nevada mountains.
Read up on Google first about the history as none is available
