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.

Beautiful castle ruins. As of September 2019 it was €3 entrance which is definitely worth it. Lovely grounds and great view. Small exhibition with some history and descriptions in English and German as well. There's an exit to the castle at the roundabout below the hill with some free parking. Then it's just a short, steep walk to the castle.
The Castle is very small and the entire costs 3€. It think it is okay for this price and the look on the top of the castle is very nice. All in all the castle isn't so interesting but what you see around on the top of it is incredible, by the way they have a toilette there, too. Have a nice trip! :)
