Just 25 kilometres from Gibraltar lies the wonderful Castellar with an atmospheric medieval castle perched on the peak of the hill. Within the walls of the old fortress lies the old village full of colourful flowers and trees.
One of the many narrow cobbled streets leads to the popular “Balcony of lovers” offering fantastic views of the vast lake beneath. Best enjoyed with your second half during sunset! In the newer part of Castellar, which lies at the foot of the hill, there is a nice medium sized zoo with a tiger, monkeys, parrots and other wildlife from all over the world. Castellar is a perfect place for a one-day trip!
