We could see the castle from our accommodation in Alora so decided to visit. It’s a very steep climb but if you aren’t that mobile you can get up to it by car if you’re brave enough. There are also lots of steps and uneven...More

Alora seems to be, even in October, a bit of a nightmare for parking, don't be put off, persevere!! Not much of a tourist town, it's a bit of unspoiled Spain. And the castle is amazing. Sure, it needs some money spending on it, but...More

Bit of a hike up the narrow streets to get there. You can drive up to the castle if you fancy navigating the narrow streets. Well worth a visit beautiful views and well kept. Toilets there but could do with a small place selling refreshments.

A ruined Moorish Castle high above Alora...good views of surrounding area and town. We first stumbled on this when getting lost in the town but was worth it when we arrived. No charge to enter. Small church inside the walls , lots of history.

Great views and a nice walk but not much else. Not sure what else you would want to be fair. It makes for a morning out with a beer in the square in town.

The view is just breathtaking. Amazing, beautiful, colorful view around Alora, Pizarra, Mountains... This is just worth going there and hard to describe by words.

A steep walk but manageable even for us oldies. Great views & well worth the walk round. Its free as well.

Not a lot there but great views. Gentle uphill walk for a average person. But an elder will struggle at times. Enjoy the views
