Today we drove up into the Sierra de Aitana in order to visit the town of Guadalest. The town is situated on top of a mountain and its castle ruins from the medieval time offers a spectacular view of the surrounding area. In fact, while at the top you can see all the way to the ocean! It required an extensive amount of walking in stairs in order to reach the castle ruins and I’m very proud of myself for actually managing to get up there! My foot is not cooperating with me right now (it started over a week ago when the cold weather arrived to Stockholm) but I had decided that I just had to get up there while we were here. The views were definitely worth it!
And a few pictures of the town:
And lastly a view down into the valley where the reservoir, Embalse de Guadalest is located:
Tomorrow we’ll spend the day along the coastline.
