High on top of the Benacantil Hill, overlooking the beautiful city of Alicante is the alluring Santa Barbara Castle. A true symbol of the Middle Ages, local tour operators and specialists in Alicante offer authorized guided tours of the castle. Many times these tours offer tourists special access to parts of the large medieval fortress that are normally off-limits to visitors.
These days, the castle ‘The Fortress Of The Ring’ exhibition is housed in the beautiful settings of the castle. The exhibition takes inspiration from the works of famous novelist JRR Tolkien and recreates the rich fantasy world of elves and hobbits of Middle Earth with life-size characters, costumes, flags, weapons, and shields. Depending on your tour itinerary, you may even be treated to a traditional lunch, including paella and a glass of beer, wine, water or soda.
Don’t miss to book this amazing tour. Make sure to make an inquiry at the Alicante hotel you’re staying at for this fantastic and interesting tour.
