    The castle was built between 1242 and 1280. The King Pierre d'Aragon, Peter the Catholic, entrusted this construction project to the Templars and thus Foulques de Montpezat, the commander of Mas Deu. Numerous changes and conversions eventually turned it into a true fortress.

    In the Middle Ages, the castle was the summer residence of the kings of Mallorca. The keep is still from this time.
    After the Pyrenees Treaty, Louis the 14th commissioned his builder Vauban to build the castle into a fortress. Vauban tore off the old town to make way for the citadel with its massive bastions. This huge bulwark is very impressive and definitely worth a visit. The visit costs 4 € for adults.
