Saint Barbara Castle Alicante

Saint Barbara Castle Alicante is set on the Monte Benacantil hill, a location of great strategic value.

Of Arab origin, the castle bears the marks of all the different peoples that the city has sheltered, although a good part of the present building only dates back to the 16th century.

Saint Barbara Castle Alicante is so-called as it was captured from the Moors by prince Alfonso of Castile on the feast day of Santa Bárbara

Santa Barbara Castle Alicante has everything you would expect, cannons, a palace, dungeons, a moat, the ruins of a small church and of course that famous lookout tower. From all around the walls you get the most fantastic views: a definite photo opportunity.

Take a look at the rocky outcrop just below the lookout point: depending on the angle that you view it, you will be able to see the outline of a Moor’s face!
