Guadalest

If you guys are ever in the region of Valencia, I would definitely recommend you take a visit to a magical place called Guadalest, it is located in the mountainous area of Marina Baixa, in the province of Alicante. The historic town is at the very top of the mountains and has remarkable views, the rumour with the locals is that there are angel spirits in the valleys. Now don’t call me crazy but I think I believe it, there is something incredibly peaceful and spiritual about it here, it has such a calming effect. Climbing the castle is no mean feat in the hot weather, but the scenery from the top is nothing short of breath taking. Throughout the town there are lots of quaint souvenir and craft shops, there is a bbq restaurant on the way up which has some of the best chicken I’ve ever tasted! It even enticed me out of a two day veggie programme (No will power you see!) A word to the wise though, if you are prone to feeling a little queasy travelling be sure to take a couple of joy rides or whatever travel sickness pills go by the name of these days, the winding roads make you feel like you’ve done a couple of hours on the waltzers after downing a bottle of cider (Can speak from experience, we were all 15 once. No?) I was ok on the way up, but coming down I felt like my head was about to fall off. Anyway it didn’t last long…. So don’t let that put you off. It really is worth it and if you are snap happy like me you will be in your elements.
