Guadalest is about half an hour to 45 minutes drive from Calpe, Moraira, Altea and Benidorm. The old village is completely situated around the castle. The castle (El Castell de Guadalest) has for many years been an important defense point for the Moors against the Spaniards.
Here you can also enjoy a beautiful view of the reservoir that was built in the last century, which for many years provided a large part of the province of Alicante with drinking water.
Who wants to visit Guadalest will have to take into account that there are quite a few differences in height. For people who have difficulty walking, a visit to Guadalest is not recommended.
