A wonderful place for those who like to explore castles/замечательное место, если вы бите бродить по замкам. It needs to be invested but the views are taking the breath/в него надо бы вложить денег, но виды и без этого захватывают дыхание

Walking through Pargue del Salado you can get to the Castle.(There are beautiful views from the top.
It´s a half day relaxing walk.

A steady walk to the top and whilst more of a ruin than castle the history and location is amazing and well worth the hike up. Once there the other great thing is the view - wonderful.

It was the first thing we visited in Lanjaron. Very easy to get there by foot. Views from the castle are amazing. Time to spend there 30-40 minutes. Of course entrance is free.

This castle was hurriedly built and was the last stand of the Muslim armies after the "Reconquista" of Spain had been savagely started. There is not much to see in the castle itself, it has great views from the top. It is more a sad monument that signified the end of an 800 year civilisation in Europe that directly triggered the Renaissance from the amount of knowledge that had been patronised by it.

Not worth the climb and walk. I’d pull up in the car and vow. What’s special is the fact it’s built on a pointed rock so building must have been truly back breaking fur the poor slaves who were conscripted.

Do this short walk early morning or evening to avoid heat. The walk is not long from village but is down then back up plus the stairs and scramble of the castle ruin itself. There is only 1 info sign in Spanish only near the big eucalyptus behind you as you face the castle from lower carpark. It’s a pity there are not more bilingual self tour signs to make this more interesting. Small compared to other moorish castles in Europe it perched on this outcropping because of the spring that fed its cistern. Wonderful views.

The view of this from a distance is nice, but it's certainly not worth the trek up to it, especially in summer, since it's just a ruin.

Ten minutes walk from the lovely town of Lanjaron, the remains of the castle is an old ruin, which has had some restoration work done recently. There is a fine car park, and amazing views from the balcony. And you can walk back through a very nice park on the edge of town. The is plenty of history associated with the originally Moorish castle, and it's on the route of some of the fine walks around Lanjaron, which are displayed on street signage.
