Sax and its castle
 
Sax is a municipality with around 10.000 inhabitants and an area of 63 square kilometers in the Alto Vinalopo region. Those who drive along the A-31 highway will come across several castles, with Sax being one of the most striking because it is built on top of a narrow rock. One side of the castle was built in the 12th century, the more recent part dates from the 14th century. There are two towers, one of which has three floors.
 
The castle can only be visited on Sunday morning at 10:30 am and this only if there is sufficient interest. For your visit it is therefore best to contact the municipality of Sax (see the contact info in the box below).
 
The castle is located on top of a rock that you can reach either from the center via a staircase or along the back park via a steep slope.
