Guadalest enjoys a spectacular location, set high on a pinnacle and carved into the mountain. Declared a ‘Monument of Historical and Artistic Value’, it’s easy to see why so many tourists flock to this stunning village every year.

A short guided tour takes you through the cobbled streets of this fairytale village and lets you enjoy the spectacular views. Head for the upper village, through a tunnel hewn out of the rock, on which the castle ruins and church’s distinctive belfry are precariously perched. Here, you’ll visit the tastefully restored ‘House of the Ordunas’ (the former overlords of the valley) before climbing the steps to the ruined castle and strolling into the cobbled village square.

Guadalest’s many craft and souvenir shops are sure to tempt you – you’ll have time to browse in the shops for handicrafts including ceramics, lace, olive-wood carvings and Lladro porcelain, to name but a few.
