We spent a lovely day in Guadalest in the hot sun of April with temperatures reaching 28 degrees. This is the summer starting in Spain and with long hot days starting now we intend to travel about and sight see. Guadalest is a small town on the top of a mountain with a little over 200 inhabitants.
The views are stunning and the turquoise reservoir below is beautiful. There are lots of parking spaces and lots of tourist shops, restaurants and bars.
The castle at the top is a hefty climb up a lot of stepps but worth the visit.
The video below gives some views of the features and area.
