“Best views in Majorca ...awesome 360 degree panorama”
Reviewed 15 June 2013

Parked in the town and walked from there brilliant walk long and tiring in the heat but not overly hard. Took about 4 hours not including rest and view time at the top and a visit to the restaurant es verger on the way back. Not much left of the castle but the views are incredible especially on the outcrop to the left of the entrance (just turn left and walk as far as you can) . Top day !

“lovely views”
Reviewed 4 June 2013

This has a very good walk up to the Castell, with 360 degree views at the top. There are refreshments up ther as well, If you are hungry, do stop at the restaurant half way up for some of the best lamb dishes around.

“Not for the faint hearted”
Reviewed 21 April 2013

This is a lovely trip, but the road up is a single stony road of hairpin bends with a few small passing areas. It is very scary when cars are coming in the other direction as it is very steep and narrow, and there is nowhere to turn around and give up if it is too treacherous for you.
Once at the top it was really beautiful, with a lovely walk to the castle, cafe, and roaming lambs. However, would never take that road again!
