Discover the scenic beauty of the village of Guadalest and its fortress, mountains and surrounding alley on a day trip from Alicante. Get spectacular views of the Costa Blanca. Then, swim in the crystal-clear spring pools of the Algar Waterfalls.
What to Expect
Depart Alicante and journey towards the village of Guadalest in the Guadalest Valley for a 6-hour tour of the scenic setting far from the crowded beaches of the Costa Blanca.
Travel inland through a mountainous area lined with charming villages. Upon arrival in the spectacular valley, go to the fortress of Guadalest village (El Castell de Guadalest) and see the remains of the 11th-century Alcozaiba fortress and San Jose Castle at the top of the cliff. Enjoy some free time to get to know the village and visit one of its museums, such as the Micro-Gigantic Museum.
Continue to Las Fuentes del Algar (Algar Waterfalls) to admire a series of crystal-clear small springs and waterfalls in a spectacular setting. Bring your swimming costume to take a refreshing dip in the springs during the summer months, or just soak up the area's surrounding pathways and natural pools.
