King James I signed the Treaty of Capdepera at Castell de Capdepera, giving this castle major historic significance for the Balearic archipelago. Construction began in 310 CE, but what you see today was built on the remains of a Muslim village in the 14th century. Inside the main stone structures are a small museum with a scale model of the fortress, and an intact chapel that is still used as a place of worship. Don your walking shoes to wander the castle grounds in search of alcoves and rooms that once housed soldiers and servants. Look out over the sea and town from one of the many towers or walls.

The castle is located at the top of the hill and has an unobstructed view over the city and the sea. It is necessary to park the car in the city and walk up the road. Entrance is paid and has a value of 3€. The castle is very well maintained, in addition to the ruins, it also has trees, flowers and even benches to sit on. In the highest part of the castle there is a chapel and a tower. The interior of the tower has been transformed into a museum where there is an explanation of the history of the place. It is a recommended place to visit.
Very interesting well preserved Castle. Loads of information to read. Very inexpensive. Great views of both the Castle and surrounding landscape. You can see menorca from the top. Nice village surrounding the Castle. Very few other people, lots of space and time to enjoy it. No time limit. I'd recommend bring some snacks to eat and enjoy the view from the top.
