Castell de Capdepera, Capdepera

4.4
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.

  • The way up alone already worth it for the great views. It has a wonderful view around. Parts of the plant are just restored and are therefore not accessible. In spite of everything in any case the three euro entry value. Beautifully maintained and wonderfully located.

  • The former protection settlement is beautifully restored. Alone the battlements (which can be walked upon but unfortunately not all) is fascinating! The view is breathtaking! There is a small church and an interesting Museum. And there are 2 bells, you can ring :-D There is even very clean toilets in the plant. The entry is entirely appropriate at 3 euros per person and to support the non-profit organization that takes care of the preservation of the system thus!

  • It makes you travel to the past, enough access and several things to visit. With changing exhibitions of Majorcan culture. I've gone several times, in low season charge €3.

  • A beautiful drive, and an amazing view! You won't believe how high up you are so quickly. Along the way and up there are multiple viewing points and little walks. There is a hotel, restaurant and a beautiful church.
  • Very cool place to visit. Maybe 2 hours total if you're really into reading all the materials. Staff were very nice. Please note that while all the signs say open at 0900, we were sitting at the front door until 10. Because Spanish Island Time.
  • Well maintained castle. The anticipated owls were not found. The room is empty, only housing some bird pictures. There are two bells that can be rung manually. The entry ticket costs 3€.
  • Capdepera Castle is very beautiful part of town. Entry fee is 3€. From it you can see all the town. Inside the castle there is some renovations at work, but nothing too serious that can bother you. The way to the castle (with car) is little tricky because some parts of roads are closed, but you can park in town (I was surpised that is free) and walk about 200m to it. I like it also because there is no so much tourists here.
  • Nice Place with a great view. Entrance price was fair- at this day also a owl exhibition was in the tower which was really interesting for the kids.
