Take the steep, bumpy, potholed, zig-zag track from Alaro (first gear for 10minutes) up to the car park at Es Verger. From Es Verger, there are two ways to the castle, either back down the track until a footpath on the left (GR221) after 200Metres...More

Such stunning views, honestly breath taking. We read the other reviews and as we had a small sports car opted to take he trail from Orient rather than Alaró. If we had started earlier in the day Alaró would have been a fine choice. We...More

It's worth the drive and walk to take in the view......just fabulous! You can park at Es Verger or walk from Alaro centre if you really want to earn your lunch. Drive is on single track road that's quite pot holed but take it steady...More

I enjoyed the walk, it is doable with very small children, just take it slow :-) My parents loved the local berried "madroños" which they couldn't stop eating along the way.

Stunning views from the top of the castle with a sheer drop on the far side at the cliff face! Not much room on the track getting up there with the car but well worth the effort. Some great walks up to the castle as...More

Amazing what some people will put on their feet for a semi-serious hike up to the top of a mountain. Another tip, let the delivery vans pass on the 1.5 track road up to the restaurant otherwise they'll ride your butt the whole way. After...More

We were staying in Alaro and drove half way up the mountain then walked up to the top of the Puig d'Alaro in the valley of the Orient. The walk in good walking shoes or boots is beautiful and the views when you reach the...More

We walked up from Orient. Not only is the walk good (though strenuous) and the views superb but right at the top is a little café in a glorious location. How they built all the buildings up there is a mystery but the day to...More
