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.

  • 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.
