El Castell de Guadalest The Essential
Recommended
The charming village of El Castell de Guadalest stands among the dales with terraces planted with olive and almond trees, face to face with the steep limestone cliffs of the Sierra d'Aitana. The location is impressive: on a remote rocky ridge that was easy to defend, it is a natural fortress, and the village is only accessible through an arch hewn out of the stone. From Sant Josep Castle there is a panoramic view of the Guadalest reservoir.
