The tiny village of Guadalest in the Province of Alicante in Spain is reached by a path to the cliffside and then through a tunnel in the rocks. Although there is only about 200 villagers, Guadalest is very popular with visitors and receives bus loads of tourists on a daily basis from nearby coastal communities.
The village was originally settled by the Moors who saw it as a strategic site and the ruins of the Castell de Guadalest and church belfry are just two of the attractions in this hard to reach, but picturesque village.
Guadalest is a town which features an array of museums which when coupled with the old castle ruins and iconic white washed bell tower named Penon de la Alcala, means there is no shortage of tourist attractions in this picturesque town.
