Capdepera castle

N 3942.251', E 326.002'

Our rating: 6.80
Overall rating:
A large and well-preserved 16th-century castle. Inside the walls were 50 buildings for 200 inhabitants, so this is even more a fortress, than a castle. The construction was carried out in 1342 - 1386, at the times when pirates actively attacked Mallorca.

Without a drone, the best view of the castle opens from the only parking lot (N 39 42.085 E 3 26.040), so even if you arrived by bus, go at first to the parking lot.
