Fodor's Review

Overlooking the city and the bay from a hillside, the castle was built at the beginning of the 14th century, in Gothic style but with a circular design—the only one of its kind in Spain. It houses an archaeological museum of the history of Mallorca, and a small collection of classical sculpture. The Bus Turistic and the EMT municipal buses Nos. 3, 4, 20, 21, and 22 all stop near the entrance. On Thursday evenings in July, from 9:30, there are classical music concerts in the courtyard, performed by the Ciutat de Palma Symphony Orchestra, and on Thursday evenings in August the castle hosts the "Summer Serenades" festival of chamber music. Tickets are from €10 (www.simfonicadebalears.com/es/summer_season.html).
