Nice little hike

Castell d' Alaro is worth the short hike. Very nice view. Together with a visit at restaurant "Es Verger" to try their famous lamb shoulder it's a nice half-day activity.

The sight is magnificent and a rewarding compensation for the ascent via Col d´Orient or Alaro and Es Verger. Don´t miss to take a break in Es Verger and feel the "real" Mallorca. Once arrived on top take a walk around the entire plateau. Most likely you will find a warning with regards to the donkeys. I love those pets,... More

Splendid views from the top! Recommend you park at the restaurant (where I had the most superb suckling pig for lunch) and walk from there. The road is not for the faint hearted - we were most fortunate to be driven by locals - very narrow and winding - tricky when vehicles are coming the other way!

Whatever you do, do not miss out on lunch/dinner at Restaurante Es Verger. Plenty of parking with the walk to the top taking about one hour. In addition you can reward yourself with a glass of wine and a slice of cake at the refuge.

We decided to go on this walk having read other reviews here, we left the car in the town & walked the whole way- so glad we did! The walk to the restaurant is a bit of a trek in the heat but an enjoyable one nonetheless, sensible shoes are definitely advised as is an earlyish start (due to the... More

For the hiking enthusiasts, park in Alaro and hike to the castle. This takes approximately 90 minutes. Or, drive to Es Verger restaurant which is half way to the castle and then it's only a 45 minute walk. Get to the top and you won't be disappointed by the views...stunning. Stop off at the restaurant on your way back down... More

Fantastic views on the top. If you hike from Alaro, you can do a loop. Continue towards Orient, then when you're on the road just before Orient, there is a very pleasant trail on the left bringing you back to Alaro.

We parked our car in the center of Alaro village, and walked from the parking to the Castell. First stop after 1h15 near the restaurant es Vergé to drink water, and 3/4 h later we reached the Castell. The walk went well, and the path to get there is quite good. For those who prefer to take the car and... More
