Castles on the Rio Vinolopo Alicante- 5 castles in one day! As well as the Santuari de Santa Maria Magdalena at Novelda

We decided to go look at some interesting Castles local to our area.

This trip, we concentrated on trying to visit the inland castles of the Rio Vinalopo. The estuary for the river is at Santa Pola, (not covered this trip)

Some of these we have seen or passed many times in the past on our travels. It was time to go and see them up close.

THIS LINK will show you the castles and locations- we didn´t do all of them!

Castles (and the Sanctuary at Novelda) covered include:
Santuari de Santa Maria Magdalena / Castell de la Mola / Novelda
Castle of Petrer
Sax Castle
Atalaya Castle, Villena
Castle of Biar
Castle Bañeres / Banyeres de Mariola

There are still lots more to find and visit.

Hopefully you´ll join us and enjoy along with us as we explore!
