Up the hill and up the stairs, on the top the old castle. Built 700 years ago as a fortress overlooking and defending the harbour and the city of Palma, ended as a prison, nowadays just a nice view, and a good healthy uphill walk. Pay the entrance fee and go up on the roof of the building and you have a splendid view over Palma and the harbour. There is a small bar where you can buy a beer or a coffee. Have a nice day and enjoy your climb.

Well worth a visit. Situated overlooking Palma and its harbour, it offers one of the best coastal views I have ever seen. Audio tapes give you the history as you walk around. Precook your return taxi though, or use the Hop on Hop Off bus which goes every 20 minutes.

We went here on our 2nd full day in Palma. Possibly stupidly, we walked all the way from our hotel, Palma Bellver by Melia, to the Castle, taking a suggested detour, off track, uphill all the way!
By the time we got there, we were tired, but really enjoyed walking around the Castle and the views were amazing.
We then decided to walk back, which obviously was easier, but we took a heavy toll on our calf muscles, but earning our glass of beer & wine.
Highly recommend a visit to the Castle, maybe taxi there and walk back down!

We drove to this castle and spent an hour walking around the place. Entry was free on a Sunday. Not too busy despite being free. It requires a lot of walking and climbing stairs, but the views of Palma from the top are amazing. We also had a snack at the cafe which has seating with nice views of the mountains.

Loverly castle. Great views. Go by taxi. Lots of steps. Sunday is free. Even during the week it is not expensive.
