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 must see for all visitors to this part of the island. A very unique castle to visit with lots of intrigue and areas to explore and discover. Quite a steep climb to get to the castle and around the site itself, but the views and toilet at the top make it all worth while! Multi-language tour leaflets given and also multi-language information boards all around with fascinating history in short paragraphs. Very reasonable entrance fee. Enjoy good peoples!
  • Our visit was out of season April so not too many people about which I am sure made the experience better. All the outside walls look intact which gives a good impression of what it would have been like, nice church on the inside walls. Information in many different languages entrance fee only 3 euros.
  • Interesting to visit & stunning views. Steep hill to top but manageable by mostvuf you take it slowly. Worth a visit.
  • Nice little castle, with beautiful views over the valleys and a lot of cats wandering around.
  • 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.
