The castle is well signposted from Alaro village and we drove to Es Verger restaurant to park, after an interesting drive with hairpin bends, a narrow and potholed road and sheer drops! There was plenty of parking and we then headed up the well marked trail through the trees. I think the path was better condition than the road we just drove up! When we looked at the castle from the car park it seemed ridiculous to even attempt such a trip but the climb was pretty easy and shaded most of the way.
After about 35 mins we were just below the gatehouse and then through, into the castle. Other than as a final place of defense I'm not sure of the strategic value of the castle due to it's inaccessibility and there isn't much left of it now. What hasn't changed is the stunning views, they really are incredible. The castle is built on a narrow ridge and it is worth exploring once you are there.
One end is very narrow but has plenty of places to sit, the other has the old chapel which is now a cafe and hostel. We walked back down the hill, had a coffee at Es Verger and then left. Well worth it as a half day excursion.
