Being close to Benidorm and beautiful, this Moorish town is now mostly devoid of Spaniards but the slowly ascending journey up the mountain, past the reservoir, with the always in view white tower perched on a rock, is something I still recall six years on. Located up in the mountains, 25km in from the Costa Blanca coast, El Castell de Guadalest is for me, visually and location-wise, the best part of Alicante Province. It’s an artistic type of place recognised for its cultural heritage whose small population of 200 or so now mostly comprises of artists, art galleries and restaurants. So there’s enough to see in the town, not least the castle and the stunning views. But the journey up and the views down define my memory of Guadalest.
