Discover its history, see spectacular views across to the island of Menorca, visit a curious museum of hand crafted objects made of woven palm leaves or watch the show of birds of prey in free flight.
The Castle was first built in the 13th Century. Its mission was to protect the population against attacks by marauding pirates.
It is one of the most important historical attractions on the island. You can walk around inside the walled fortress and enjoy spectacular views out over the channel that separates Mallorca from the neighbouring island of Menorca. Inside the castle grounds lies the former Governor’s House, now home to a museum illustrating the art of making items from “llata” (the craft of working with the leaves of the dwarf fan palm). On the highest part of the castle enclosure stands the tower of Miquel Nunis, originally built by the Moors. Very close by is the Chapel, where the ancient altar is crowned by a Gothic figure of Christ sculpted from the wood of an orange tree.
