The castle has a prominent position over Almuñecar and is easy to walk to from the town center through narrow pretty streets. There is an entrance of around 3€, which includes the archaeological museum nearby in the old town. In one of the old Towers there is a short humorous film which explains the history of the area. The castle dates from the 1st century and is well preserved and tastefully maintained. It takes about 1 hour to visit. It has panoramic views over Almuñecar and you can see the Sierra Nevada in the distance. To get to the Castle entrance there is a steep climb. It is closed on Mondays.
