Many claim Guadalest valley, about an hour, drive North East of Alicante is one of the prettiest places they have visited.
Guadalest is a small castle village, reached through a winding road and a tunnel. No wonder locals call it an Eagle's nest. It is set high up on a mountain, carved out of its top and the scenery is beautiful.
One can understand and appreciate its strategic importance right away, and it is of no surprise Guadalest was a military stronghold with several castles down the history, the remains of which can still be seen today.
One of its most famous landmarks, the Peñon de La Alcalá tower is still rising high above the village to watch over the valley below.
There is a huge castle overlooking Alicante as well. Santa Barbara Castle rises 166 meters above the sea level and it offers an excellent view over the entire Alicante bay. It is much more to it, though.
The origin of the fortress date back to the ninth century. It has seen plenty of action, last one in late 19th century.
Nowadays it is the home of the city museum and houses several exhibitions.
