The Castell de Capdepera is one of the best preserved fortifications on Mallorca. It dates back to the 14th century and is located in the northeast of Mallorca. A strategic inland location yet close to the coast and the Menorca Canal. It is visible from afar on a hill above the city. So it's no wonder that the castle offers a spectacular view of the city of Capdepera, the surrounding area and the sea.
Inside the castle there are some watchtowers and the chapel of Nuestra Senyora de la Esperanza. You can walk along part of the castle wall and you can also climb up one of the towers. The roof of the church, originally built for defense purposes, now serves as a viewing terrace. In addition to the rural surroundings and the city, you can even see the lighthouse at Cap de Capdepera near Cala Ratjada on the coast. The Castell has been owned by the city of Capdepera since 1983.
