Santa Barbara Castle is probably the most emblematic construction in the city. It's a fortified enclosure dominating the city of Alicante and its bay from 166 metres high. Archeological foundings supose the dating of the castle's construction in 1562, during the reign of Phillip II. Famous for being one of the biggest medieval fortresses in Europe, Santa Barbara's Castle stands as a crown on the top of Mount Benacantil, from where you can admire the most privileged views of the city of Alicante and its surroundings.
