“Great views - an adventure getting to top”

Castello della Fava
Ranked #3 of 6 things to do in Posada
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 8 June 2018

Great views from the top - lots of ladder stairs to get up there, culminating in an actual ladder on the final section. Tricky with small children and not for those who don't like heights. Not good for those with mobility problems either. Lovely little town surrounds the castle.

To be completely honest the castle is the only thing of note to see in the town ( I am excluding the beach) its perched high up on top of the hill and offers fabulous views across the countryside and seaside . The views are a great photo opportunity and the walk below the castle through the cobbled streets of the old town are quite spectacular.
The entrance fee is only 3 euro pp so not expensive but its more of tower than a castle, and the the fable of how it got its name ( castle of the bean is amusing ) so I would definitely recommend a visit. However ladies one word of caution, to get to the top you have to climb a short ladder through a sort of manhole, so if you are planning a visit do not a skirt or dress, shorts or trousers are required assuming you wish to retain your modesty.

3Euro per adult to get up there.
Beautiful views, slightly scary open windows in the tower, watch your kid all the time!

Great views from the top! You do have to climb up a ladder and through a roof hatch at the top, ideally wear shorts or something under skirt/dress, more dignified when you climb back down! and sensible shoes :)
