Apart from checking out its castle and view, there are a few more places to check out while up here.



Orduña Municipal Museum

The House was built after the great earthquake of 1644 that devastated the region and ruined the premises of the castle.

It was built by the Orduña Family, a family of Basque origin who had arrived in El Castell de Guadalest as trusted people of the Cardona, Admirals of Aragon. D. Sancho de Cardona received in 1542 the title of Marquis de Guadalest. The Orduña was at the service of the marquises as warden of the fortress and governors of their states.

The house was burned and sacked during the War of Succession (1708). In 1756, Mr Pedro Antonio Buenaventura de Orduña y García entered the Military Order of Santiago, thus obtaining access to the noble estate.
