By:Albert Doug

Guadalest is the picturesque pueblo in Spain. Guadalest stands for the Eagle's Nest. Hovering on the mountain you will get the opportunity to have a magnificent view of the neighboring valley and the river of Guadalest situated right below the mountain. The Guadalest town is the most picturesque pueblo and considered Marina Alta’s hidden gem by the side of the Costa Blanca in Spain.

If you are planning your holiday in Costa Blanca, do not forget to visit Guadalest to have a great magical experience. You can reach Guadalest by road. It is a very interesting journey which commences with the maritime picturesque scenery of the Altea village. The roads wind up alongside the Mountain of Sierra de Aitana past the villages of Xorta and Polop right on the Guadalest valley.

Entering the Guadalest village, you will come across the relics of a prehistoric medieval castle erected by Moors more than 1200 years ago. Today the ruins stand alone telling the tale of how it served as a military outpost to defend the inhabitants of Guadalest during the battles. You can enter the castle by means of a tunnel which is carved out from a rock. The debris of the medieval castle today lies on the perilous cliff-top projection which stretches to look out over the Guadalest valley floor beneath it.

The Arrabal village of Guadalest will give you the not so sophisticated, medieval touch with a hoard of bazaar panache kind of métier shops, exclusive cafes and restaurants for visitors to enjoy. When you stroll along the main street in the Arrabal, you shall come across the streets or stop by stalls put up by the locals eager to persuade the tourists to purchase varieties of leather merchandises along with some brilliant paintings. You can have a stunning view of the Costa Blanca scenery or the most enchanting sight of the blue Guadalest Lake that sparkles like an emerald beneath the balmy Mediterranean sun. The lake forms an excellent background and the charming pueblo of Guadalest is seen against the lake.

The town foyer of Guadalest, a masterpiece of the past was engraved out from a rock more than 1000 years ago. You can locate the Virgin’s community church near the town foyer with a tower having a large bell attached which is also carved from a rock. Apart from the citadel, Guadalest has numerous authentic museums exhibiting variety of exhibits like Picasso’s works inscribed on a kernel or the unique Statuette of Liberty and more.
