The castle is situated in the high part of the town and it was first a Muslim settlement that over the years became part of the Aragon Crown.

Once outside of the Castle you will visit the old prison located inside the Town Hall.

Once the 5 hours have gone by, you will head back to Alicante where this experience finishes.
