Felanitx, the castle and the wine

Castle of Santueri Felanitx

Felanitx is located in the south east of Mallorca and is part of the Migjorn region. The ships for Felanitx dock in the natural harbour of ortocolom. It has a population of around 18000 people. Interesting places to visit are the Castell Santueri, the church of Saint Michael (Sant Miquel) and the market, which opens every Sunday 0800-1300. Also the archeological site of Closos de Can Gaia is an interesting visit if you have enough time in the town. The current project was started in 1996 and belongs to the University of the Balearic Islands.

The castle of Santueri

The Santueri Castle is some 400 metres high on a cliff top. The fortification includes towers, walls and cliffs.Inside the cave of Riscos, there are another two caves, Bous and Confessionari dels Moros, where excavations took place in the first decade of the 20th Century. Ceramic and bronze objects found there show occupation since the year 1000. The castle was declared a Cultural place of interest in 1949. The castle inside is practically in ruins, so the authorities of the town are now collecting money in order to restore and do archeological work. Therefore the entrance is €4, free for children. The views from the castle are stunning, and you can see the whole island. From the north wall you can see the Monastery of Saint Salvador.

Dogs are allowed on a leash. It takes less than an hour to go around the 11 points on the recommended walk.
