A lot of fun!!! Colomares castle is a must see when on the Costa del Sol

Had no idea this existed, let alone visited it before!! to think that just three people built this fairytale-like castle and did so in their spare time. Its an amazing feat.

A visit to the Colomares castle is highly recommended. The whole family will enjoy it!
