Santa Bàrbara Castle Free Tour

Guillermo visited us and it was wonderful. He had made that visit many times before and even so he told us many details and curiosities of the Castle that we did not know. 100% recommendable. We would love to know if you make any other visits.

Santa Bàrbara Castle Free Tour

The wonderful Santa Barbara Castle stands atop Mount Benacantil on Alicante's wonderful coastline. At 6 pm, we'll meet up in the courtyard to start our guided free tour of one of the largest medieval forts in Spain.

As you walk around, you'll be transported back to the era of Arab rule in the Iberian peninsula. As you discover the keep, the tower, and the cistern, you'll learn all about the rebellions, betrayals, and fights which have occurred within its walls.

The visit would not be complete without also discovering the legends of wandering ghosts and love stories which have taken place in the castle. We'll also tell you all about how the castle earned the nickname "the face of the monkey".

Besides being a testimony to the history of Alicante, Santa Barabara castle is an essential visit. Its location at 544 feet high makes it a great place for panoramic views across the bay of Alicante and its surroundings.
