Ibiza castle is located by the sea in the old Town and is a World Heritage Site. The walk uphill is very steep, but a scooter can be hired to take you up and down if mobility is a problem. The stunning views from the top of the castle are worth the effort. Shops, cafes, restaurants and small houses all... More

We walked up on a cloudy September morning. It can be hard but the views from the top are worth it. We walked back down following the road.

Quite a climb to the top but the views are well worth it. The streets have character and a number of shops to stop and visit. A "must do" if you're visiting Ibiza Town.

A fairly strenuous climb to the top but lots of quaint stores to slow you down. Go early in the day when it is cooler. Good views over the bay and the old town

As you approach from the sea and catch your first glimpse of this beautiful medieval castle, you catch a breath and feel as if time just did a quick rewind and you are in a galley with other pirates, getting ready for the assault...all kinds of images of how they lived, the sounds, the smells...and if you arrive in may...

Walking uptown is a must. The astonishing views from the top are useful to understand the city. Nice restaurants in the way will make it a nice evening activity

Despite Ibiza having a reputation of being an 'island for ravers' I loved it. Off season is definitely the time to go. We arrived on the 9th October for a weeks holiday. Apart from a day of thunder, lightning and rain we had lovely weather.The Castle enclosure, in Ibiza town, is well worth a visit. The views over the bay... More

No the place to go to get out of the rain. Very slippery and steep. Alright in the summer but to be avoided in the rain. Great views but the descent is a nightmare. Art gallery is good and free.
