It's a bit hard to go there, but if you like old historical sightseeing places - you should definitely see it! A combination of a very isolated fortress, something along the lines of what you expect to see after watching Fellowship of the Ring movie and astonishing view of Mallorca from above.

Went to visit the castle thinking it might be in the middle of Alaró not knowing what to expect. Then I started seeing how the signs toke me more and more inside the mountains and farther from the small town. The road up to the place has seen better days and you notice how this might have been quite a... More

A good 2 hour walk up from the Alaro-Orient road although you can drive up as far as Es Verger restaurant but as other reviewers have said the road is not in the best condition and very narrow. The views from the top make the effort worthwhile. You can climb up from the other side, from Orient, which is a... More

This place is incredible, don't park at the restaurant until you get to El Vergel, it's a tough drive but taken steady it's ok, be aware though of the narrow, windy and steep road, forewarned is forearmed. The El Vergel restaurant is incredible, the walk to the castle from here is amazing, it's about 4 kilometers from the restaurant to... More

Coffee shop at the top, great coffee and snacks. Accommodation is also available. Superb view at the top. Parking near the top, or make a day of it and hike up from Alaro.

We parked in the... More

Like other reporters we were ill-prepared for our visit to the Castle having only seen it briefly described in an “essential guide” of the island and set off in our hired Ford Fiesta blissfully unaware of what lay ahead! The Castle wasn’t listed on our sat nav so it took a little driving around the village of Alaro to find... More

We decided to visit the Castell de Alaro after seeing it depicted on the 'Lux Mallorca' tv channel while on holiday in Mallorca. Having hired a car for a couple of days we thought it would be a reasonably simple journey based on the minimal information depicted in the tv description. Little did we know! After finding our way through... More

The trip to Castell d'Alaro is worthwhile. From the top of the mountain, you have the most fantastic view of most of Mallorca. If you are into hiking, you can walk from the village of Alaro to the top of the mountain in a couple of hours, and it is a very nice walk. You can also drive to the... More

Surprisingly not many people are aware of this nice experience. If you ask local people, they present many options, but not Alaro. "Man, it is just ruin, visit other places" I`ve been informed by local citizen when asking for a direction. Don`t let youself down and try to start your adventure day ! Car is much recommended, as starting point... More
