We enjoyed the visit at this castle very much. The castle otself is quite simple but the views on top of the castle and its hill are breath-taking. You must visit this castle if you visit Alicante!

We took the lift up from opposite the beach - well worth it for €2.70 each on a hot and humid day. Great views all round of Alicante and the sea. There’s a small cafe at the top for a pit stop. Well worth a visit.

You absolutely can not go to Alicante without a trip up to the Santa Barbara castle.

Amazing views and lots of history. Only around€2.75 euors to take the lift to the top.

If you feel energetic there is a path to the top but it's hard going and very hot in summer.

Once you get there plenty of things to see and do and a little drink and snack place to have a rest and a cold drink.

Amazing views of this amazing city.

Great views across the area. Easy to get to on the City 'hop on hop off' tour bus. For the fitter traveller there is a clear pathway to the Castle.
The Castle itself is well maintained with plenty of interesting sights, and a couple of 'watering holes'.

It was lovely to climb up to the castle and see the breathtaking views from the top. Well worth a visit if you’re in Alicante. There are lifts that go to the top but I personally preferred the exercise.
