Spain is mainly known for its glorious beaches and the big city breaks in Barcelona and Madrid. But spread around the countryside of the vast country we find hidden little gems worth visiting for their charm, beauty, history or splendid features.
Gaudalest is such a fantastic place that you must visit if you are anywhere near the Costa Blanca and fancy a little trip inland to another world.
The Castle of Gaudalest and the charming village surrounding it is built high upon a mountain top with the ancient houses literally squeezed onto the top of the mountains or built inside caves in the mountain sides.
I promise, you have never seen anything like it and pictures just wont capture the beauty of this mountainous village near Altea on the Costa Blanca.
