Not too difficult a climb as close to the town. A ruin but safe to visit as barriers in place. If you are in the area something to see but wouldn't come here specially.

Nice view from this old castle in a very cosy little town. Looks closed but the gates are open so it just to enter.

We went three times to Lanjaron, we enjoyed the ride from Salobrena where we stayed. Although we never found the Spa in Lanjaron, the local people and restaurants were very friendly. This place is well worth a visit
