Tour Santa Barbara Castle

Tour information

Alicante’s main monument, Santa Barbara Castle, deserves a tour by itself. On the tour the monument is explored from a historical point of view and covered from top to bottom.

This impressive fortress started to be built in Muslim times, one thousand years ago. Since then it has been a place of uprisings, betrayals, and even fights to death undertaken by kings. Come and get to know the castle and all its legends and myths!

On arrival

Meeting point is the ELEVATOR TO THE CASTLE (C/ Jovellanos Nº 1)

Things to note

The castle is open until 10 PM (until midnight in July and August), and it’s free entry, that is why after the guided tour you will be able to stay longer in the castle by your own.
The price of the tour includes the ticket to use the elevator (up and down) whose cost is 2,70€. At the end of the tour (at 7 PM) each client will receive his individual ticket so they can go down when they want, but the last time to use the lift is 19:40h (7:40 PM)
The meeting point is the main doorway to the elevator. The guide will have the tickets to get on the lift all together.
