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 did a great hike with my sister and we had lovely sunset. We made a nice BBQ and enjoyed the view.

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

So many 5 star reviews, but when the weather is against you it makes a difference. Yes the drive up to the restaurant, Es Verger, from Alaro is not for the faint hearted as there are so many tortuous hairpins on a narrow road with what they call passing places. Then an hour to walk to the castle - at... More

Fairly arduous climb but worth it. Views from the castle were breathtaking. Started and returned to Orient.

The view from the summit is the best of the island. And in my mind you need to go there to experience something that most tourists do not see while on Mallorca. Starting off from the small city of Alaro, you drive trough smaller and smaller roads. They end halfway up the mountain at the oldest restaurant on the island,... More

ok so the drive from Alaro to Restaurant Es Verger, where we parked the car, wasn't that great for me as I dislike hights and lots of bends and this is just one big mean zig zag mother of a road. But once there I thoroughly enjoyed the walk up to the castle. Amazing place it must have been, I... More

From the village of Orient it's 450m vertically to the Castell d'Alaro. From Alaro it's 650m, so they say. The walk from Orient is delightful. A guidebook refers to it as easy/medium. It didn't seem that easy to us, but we enjoyed it. The walk started along the road and led us through sheep-filled olive groves; up into the oak... More

We drove part of the way from Alaro up to a restaurant, then walked up to the Castell. Quite strenuous one and half hour walk, but worth it for the views at the top.

Interesting challenge, running to the top from the centre of Alaro. Fantastic views from the top, you can almost see the whole island.
