Castell de Capdepera, Capdepera

King James I signed the Treaty of Capdepera at Castell de Capdepera, giving this castle major historic significance for the Balearic archipelago. Construction began in 310 CE, but what you see today was built on the remains of a Muslim village in the 14th century. Inside the main stone structures are a small museum with a scale model of the fortress, and an intact chapel that is still used as a place of worship. Don your walking shoes to wander the castle grounds in search of alcoves and rooms that once housed soldiers and servants. Look out over the sea and town from one of the many towers or walls.

    With our three-year daughter to the Castell, have not regretted the visit and can recommend him. In an hour we saw everything, of course you can stay even longer. We have not participated in a guided tour, but panels will explains everything nice. Shaded are a destination for the early morning or late afternoon rather scarce, rather.

    Panoramic view. Nice staff. Beautiful chapel. Enjoy your visit. 3 euros per person and free under 12 years old. Do not miss.

    With a Castle view precious, on one side the sea and the hinterland of the island. It is in renovation so there are areas that cannot be accessed. The best are the views from the top. Curious the small chapel that there is. The entrance is not going according to what you see. There is no guide.

  • Beautiful Castle. A must see if you're in Capdepera, especially in May when the Medieval festival is on! There's usually a 3€ entrance fee, worth it to see inside and admire the views from the top.
  • Beautiful, peaceful and gorgeous views. When we went they had falcons and owls we could get up close to, amazing experience
  • it was a great festival there i really enjoy it!!!!it was really crowdy but still lots of fun!

  • Great view! A must see!
