Tour description

We are waiting for you at the top of Mount Benacantil, to tell you the history of this monumental Castle through the voice of its protagonists. Are you ready for an exciting journey through time?


Our tour begins in the Patio de Armas del Castillo, next to the access building to the Castle. Did you know that it is one of the largest medieval fortresses in Spain?

At our first stop we will go back to Muslim times to learn about the history of the castle since its construction. While we visit essential corners such as the Torre del Homenaje, the Torre de Santa Catalina or the cistern, we will discover the rebellions, betrayals and fights that have occurred within its walls. Do you know which king staged a death match in this place? We will find out during the visit.

This free tour would not be complete without referring to the legends of wandering ghosts and love stories that have taken place in this castle. What tragic event gave the profile of the castle the name "La Cara del Moro"? You will have to wait for the day of the tour to find out.

In addition to being a testimony to the history of Alicante, the castle of Santa Bárbara is an essential place to visit . Its location at an altitude of 166 meters makes it the ideal place to get a panoramic view of the bay of Alicante and its surroundings.


⚠️The meeting with the guide takes place directly at the Castle. If the client decides to go up by elevator, it has a price of €2.70 (free for pensioners who prove this condition by means of an accrediting document). You can also go up on foot or by vehicle
