The town of Castalla originated in the valley around the castle of Castalla. At 600 metres above the Mediterranean Sea, it is possible to overlook the whole area "De La Hoya the Castalla" from the castle. Castalla was once the capital of this area and Ibi, Onil, Castalla and Tibi are part of it.
The climate in this green valley is a mix of the Mediterranean and the mountains. In the months of January and February you can even expect snow showers.
Castalla castle, the old centre and the 2 churches of Castalla, from the 13th and 16th centuries, will take you back in time. It is not a village but a town as Castalla got its city rights in 1890. Castalla is proud of that.
