"A fun way to get on the castle of Santa Barbar" Alicante Things to Do Tip by little_mouse

Alicante Things to Do: 182 reviews and 301 photos


This is a very nice and cosy way up which will lead you through a little mountainous sreets. I was walking in the evening, it was so peaceful and empty - i could hear the sound of my own steps crashing into the walls. Tiny streets with collourful houses and flowers pots on the road - few moments it seemed like i am going to the dead end and will step inside someones house. But dont worry - it will take you all the way up to the castle. I would recomend you to go through this experience instead taking a lift to the caste - it was a wonderful experience :-) !

Directions: On the end of explanada (on the way to the castle) - turn left, you will cross the gate with a clock) then turn right and you will see it :-)
