Excursion to Santueri Castle

The castle of Santueri, one of the only three castles built on rocks in Majorca, is one of the main attractions of the Sierra de Levante and the municipality of Felanitx, in the southeast of the island. Located on the top of a hill and 423 m above sea level, this monument offers spectacular views that include the Puig de Sant Salvador. 

The function of this thirteenth century castle, declared an Asset of Cultural Interest in 1949, was mainly defensive. However, the walled enclosure accommodated a plain that allowed the cultivation of vegetables and pastoral activity, and also housed a chapel and a mill. During the visit to the castle of Santueri, you will find 11 marked points, from which you can obtain information by consulting the brochure that will be given to you at the entrance of the fortified enclosure or by using a QR code reader. You must keep in mind that this activity is not recommended for people with functional diversity or for those who would like to visit with a baby cart. 

If your excursion to Santueri Castle is on a Sunday, we advise you to take advantage of the morning to visit the lively Felanitx market, visit the Puig de Sant Salvador or take a walk along the idyllic beaches of Portocolom, where you will also find ROIG transport company’s offices.
