Jimena de la Frontera Travel Guide: 32 reviews and 48 photos

We were spending a few days in Gibraltar and hired a car to drive over into Spain. As we are not really 'beach' people we wanted to explore and visited Castellar de la Frontera and also here Jimena de la Frontera.

As there isnt a page on vt for Castellar de la Frontera, I will put that under the 'Off the beaten track' heading.

There seems to be a nice village below these castle ruins, however we didnt have time to explore there also and drove straight up to the castle instead.

    True, but IMO the absence of warning signs, fences and barriers is part of its appeal. In Spain, safety is still a matter of personal responsibility. So keep your kids on a lead and enjoy the castillo in its natural state!

    If you do a search on "Castellar" in VT you will find Castellar de la Frontera. Good page on Jimena.
