Santa Barbara Castle Tour Itinerary

Meet your expert English-speaking tour guide in the Patio de Armas, or "Arms Courtyard" of the Santa Barbara Castle. From here, you'll begin your guided tour of this ancient fortress that has watched over the coastal city of Alicante from its vantage point on Mount Benacantil since the Middle Ages.

Explore the historic hilltop fortification, which dates back to the 9th century when it was built under Arab rule, and has since undergone numerous reconstructions following its conquest by various different kings over the centuries. As well as ancient church ruins, wells and crumbling golden stone walls, you'll have spectacular views over the Mediterranean coastline of Alicante from the castle.
