From our hotel at Fuengirola beach hotel the castle is a short walk away, the castle is between 10am and 2 pm, we enjoyed this leisurely walk up the hill, depending on the time of your visit you may see the Hoopu birds, there are always green parrots feeding on the grass.

It's a short walk from the Castle car park up the hill and even if it's shut you can still walk around and enjoy the views.

We walked up to the castle but as its not open every day we couldn't get inside. However, the view from the castle is great and still worth the walk up.

This castle sits in a marvellous position over the beach and town. It's a pleasure to drive past and admire. Whilst we never went through we never tire of walking past or driving past. A must see if around fuengirola

Visited the castle on an extremely windy day. We had tried to visit previously but during the week it closes at 14.00 why I am unsure because when we did arrive the gate was open with no attendant no fees to pay and only leaflets and notices on the wall.

It's a rather small but nice little castle. It takes just a couple of minutes to walk around it. The day we visited the castle, it was closed. We were only able to see the inside of the castle while standing at the main gate. The outer walls are standing, probably after quite some restauration. Most of the innards are... More
