The striking feature of this castle is its shape. The castle is in a round shape, that is something not a common feature among other Spanish castle. Later in 1976, the castle was turned into the city’s history museum. At present, tourists have accessibility to visit the place.

  • 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.
