Worth a stop on the tourist bus tour
Oct 2021 • Couples
Nice views from the castle and surrounding area. We chose to walk along the front and up through the trees which is nice but quite steep. The tourist bus will take you to the car park though. Only 4€ to get in but you can get as good views from the terraces below really.

Fantastic views. Bring your own drinks!
Oct 2021 • Couples
Please be aware that at the time of writing (late October 2021) the cafe at the castle is closed. There is nowhere to buy a drink (or even sit down!) at all. If you’ve just climbed nearly 500 steps to get here you are going to regret not bringing a drink with you!

Spectacular views but it was a thirsty trip!

Lovely castle
Oct 2021 • Couples
This castle has a rich history, which is well documented around the various rooms.
It is being sympathetically restored in keeping with the original stone work. Some lovely views of Palma

This Wes getting some refurb when we visited and entry was free, but most of all the views are worth the visit alone, also the hop on hop off bus will take you there.

Nice Castle
Aug 2021
An interesting drive through palma brings you to this castle after a bendy trip up the road to the top of the hill.

The castle is quite spectacular, and we were lucky that on the day we went it was free entry. the museum inside the castle is well worth the time spent investigating it thoroughly, it traces the roots of mallorca from 2000 B.C through to modern days and is very interesting.

The views from the castle roof however are why most people will come here and they are majestic even if the day is cloudy

Beautiful castle on the outskirts of Palma
Aug 2021
Nice castle some 3km away from the centre of Palma. It has a small museum on the history of Balearics. We enjoyed the exhibition about Mallorca Germanica (the peasant revolt). Parking may be a problem, but you can park your car on the road for free.

Don’t miss it—it’s fab
Jul 2021
Highly interesting castle—one of only 2 or 3 round castles in Europe. Not necessarily free to Americans, but it is free to everyone on Sundays. King James II had it built and used it as a residence. These days it contains a really nice museum of history. You get great info about the Talaiot (Bronze Age people) of prehistoric times and the Arab occupation. They have displays of ancient and Medieval art pieces; and they depict the use of the castle as a military base and a prison. If you get lucky you can attend a musical performance in the open air rotunda. Views over the city and the Mediterranean are terrific. Definitely a must-see; and if you have the time you can stroll through the wooded grounds.

No taxis to get you back to your hotel
Jul 2021 • Couples
Nice castle to visit! Free admission to Americans. Use the free audio guide to give you more in depth information. The biggest negative is no taxis in this area….We waited over 30 minutes and no taxis come up here. Suggest not to come without a way to get back to your hotel.
