Alicante, Spain (2) – Castillo de Santa Barbara

The Castillo de Santa Barbara is located on Mount Benacantil beside the Mediterranean Sea.  The walk through the remains of this huge castle area was quite surreal.  Well maintained to keep that historic feel, we see things that existed back in the Bronze Age.  It was very thought provoking.
