  • His visit is worth not only by the architecture of military defence which has the Castle, if not by the exhibition of the history of Mallorca and characters illustrious of the same, an illustrative tour on the island. And especially when I went on 3 March free entry, as they are the times one cannot believe it is

  • Admission is 4e, but Sunday is free, I recommend go on Sunday because it is so little for so much, in 3/4 time you can see it well. You have to go by car or motorbike

  • A restored castle with panoramic view of the surroundings hills on one side and awesome view of the ocean on the other side. You can see the cruise ships docked nearby. The castle is closed when we went. The walk around the vicinity is a little disappointing. The 3 star rating is just for the view.
  • Great piece of Mallorcan history. 4 euros per person admittance. Residents of the island pay 1/2 price. Wheelchair accessible to all levels through motorized stair chair. This is one of the few circular castles in Europe. We rented bicycles from Palma and rode in. The hills were steep in quite a few areas, but easily manageable if you are in decent shape.
  • Beautiful structure, free access on Sundays. Most rooms have history about Mallorca. The views are astonishing. It rained, but it was beautiful anyway. :)
  • If I said go to one place when visiting majorca, it would be this, the views are amazing the history is great and is not very busy, it is at the top of a hill, which is a nice walk or you can get a bus to the entrance. It costs just €4 and is well worth the money.
  • It's a round gorgeous building, with really beautiful views of the Palma area. There are stairs to get up to the roof of the castle. You can access a few rooms with statues and castle info from the interior courtyard. Get a ticket from the parking lot ticket both for €4.
