The story of our adventure in Spain

In October 2002 we purchased a holiday flat in Guardamar on Spain's Costa Blanca - not far from Alicante and Torrevieja and we try to spend a good part of the year in Spain.

This blog hopefully will contain our thoughts and impressions of Spain - the good and the bad and lots and lots of photographs of not only Guardamar but the rest of Spain as we eventually get to explore it.

Guardamar - the castle.

Guardamar's very own castle - not too much to it - surrounding walls but no buildings inside - all rather bare and barren.

Good views towards Rojales and Santa Pola can be had from the top - quite a steep walk for those not used to steep gradients.

Walkways have been created recently around the outside of the castle on the steep slopes - a good idea but two problems - most visitors to Guardamar head to the beach and not the castle and secondly when I was there last, the undergrowth had already started to encroach on the paths making it difficult to walk.
