The historic town of Guadalest is well worth a visit. Guadalest is inland within a half an hour’s drive from Calp.
It is a village with only 200 inhabitants. However, 2 million tourists arrive annually. This is mainly due to the unique location of Guadalest. It is like a crows nest in the mountains and can only be reached via a tunnel in the rocks. Afterwards, you will be treated to a formidable view of the mountains and the reservoir.
On this reservoir is daily (except on Saturday) a boat trip with a fully solar-powered boat. The trip with the Barco Solar is 50 minutes.
The castle, El Castell de Guadalest, was built by the Moors in the 12th century AD. The remains of the castle and the later built house (17th century) are open to visitors.
