The village of Guadalest in the Province of Alicante in Comunidad Valenciana, Spain is nestled away in a beautiful valley or a pinnacle which has been carved out of the top of the mountain. From above the Castle of Guadalest, the view is amazing as you can look out over the valley landscape until it meets up with the Mediterranean Sea along the Costa Blanca coastline.
The shade slowly moves in over the landscape, but the higher peaks where the Castle of Guadalest is located are still very noticeable atop the sunny rock ledges. During the summer months, the hillsides become greener as wildflowers bloom across the landscape.
To reach the village of Guadalest in the Province of Alicante, Spain you must follow the CV-70 inland where it winds its way around the landscape high into the valley. The permanent number of residents which actually reside year round in the village of Guadalest is about two hundred, but the region has proven to be one of the most popular tourist attractions while visiting Spain.
Travel to great heights to the remains of the Castle of Guadalest and the Peon de La Alcala Tower which both look out over the valley landscape. Small shops, cafes and museums make up the castle village along with tours where you can explore the interior of the castle and view the great defensive walls. It is best to spend the morning hours at the castle as the heat in the afternoon can become unbearable.
