We stumbled across this place whilst driving along the coast from Cala Millor. We could see the hill in the distance which enticed us to venture nearer and we weren't disappointed. It's a beautiful castle of which the oldest remaining tower dates back to 1216 if I remember correctly. Many additions have been made over the centuries and you can walk around at your leisure. There are quite a few steps to climb to reach the castle, we did count them, I think it was around 147 but you can take your time so there is no rush. There is a 3 euro entry fee but you get a brochure telling you how best to walk around and there was also a free booklet to take away of the castles history through the centuries. You can walk around half of the ramparts and take in the stunning views but some still need re-in forcing. They are still excavating the village built within the castle walls but you are well informed of what has been done so far. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area. It's not huge so will only take you 30 minutes or so to look around. There are toilets within the castle grounds and there is a free car park at the bottom of the hill, well signposted through the village.

3 euro entry gets you into this gorgeous little castle, the walk around it is lovely and the small museum is very interesting.

the highlight is the view from the very top where you can see menorca in the distance and can have a go at bell ringing on the chapel roof.

very quiet place not man tourists makes it a lovely place to visit

Saw this on the hill top on our way to Cala Mesquida and resolved to visit before the end of the holiday. We were not disappointed. We visited on a Sunday and like many small towns off the main tourist trail, the town itself was asleep! We could have been braver and parked a lot nearer to the castle, but the walk through the quiet streets was a pleasant experience in itself. a very reasonable €3 entry led to a great exploration of the site. Hot haul to the top but the views from the chapel roof are sensational in all directions, The heat haze blurred the horizon and obscured Menorca sadly but, hey ho, we'll have to return! Please ring the chapel bells, lovely sound.
A section of the wall and a couple of towers are also explorable.
As we left the admissions times suggeste it may be open after dark.... that would be tremendous!

Well worth a look if you are in the area. It's very possible to walk up from Cala Ratjada if you take your time. The village is lovely and the views from the Castell are great. Admission is very cheap, only €3 for an adult.

We decided on a trip out away from the beach for a change. The castle is great, not expensive to get in, but it's not very big so not enough for a whole day out. There are a couple of nice cafes and restaurants in the village below.
