The Spanish really like their Castle’s. This one was closed today.
Of course, we only found out when we climbed up 😂

Castillo De Santa Barbara Alicante

If you plan on visiting Alicante, I’d recommend you climb up here.

Once you climb (or stroll as we did) Mount Benacantil (166 m) you arrive at Castillo de Santa Bárbara (Santa Bárbara Castle). The castle is steeped in history. But if history isn’t your thing, you will be rewarded with 360° views across the city and beyond.
