Castle Alaró - Mallorca
The old castle sits, perched on its seemingly inaccessible rock, just outside the town of Alaró in Mallorca. This is a ruin dating back over 800 years and,seen from below, it looks as if climbing up would take forever. However, a narrow winding road takes you and your car part of the way ... at least to Lorenz's famous restaurant where you might be tempted to try the superb slow-cooked lamb and his home-made 'tinto' wine. From there an uphill stroll, along a path kept up partly with EC funding, leads to the ruined castle and, just above it, a monastery.
