The Castle at Salobreña

Updated: Apr 22


On Wednesday, March 30th, we drove 15 minutes down the coast to visit the 10th Century Moorish castle at Salobreña: El Castillo de Salobreña. The narrow cobblestone streets leading up to the entrance were particularly beautiful and there was an old house for sale right at the castle entrance! The castle has four towers and amazing 180 degree views of the coast, mountains and city, which is known for it's pristine white walls (now dirty yellow from the Sahara wind storm, "Calima," that rained mud all over Spain). There are intricate cobblestone floors, and the Nazari baths (with tile work and herring-bone bricks) are similar to the ones at the Alhambra.
