Castell de Capdepera, Capdepera
(4.4/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Absolutely Worth a visit. Wonderful view and interresting history. Not particularly easy to find a parking place, and also a steep walk both up there and inside (good excersise). Only EUR 4 in entrance.
  • Quite nice place to visit. You can actually walk some of the walls of the castle. Admission 4 Euro per adult.
  • Nice castle with magnificent view all around. A little exhibition inside introduces the history of Majorca and the history of this particular castle.
  • Very nice view. Totally romantic. I'm female. Also very informative. Definitely worth a visit.

  • Superb Castle of the 14th century which overlooks the city with a wonderful view. Chapel, Watchtower and small museum on site. Not too big, very suitable for children who can explore it without danger
