Climb Description

Castell de Santueri is located in the Serra de Llevant in the east of Mallorca. The climb begins 2km south of Felanitx at the junction of the Ma-14 and Cami des Castell. It is clearly signed from here and the top of the climb is actually at the castle.

The Castell de Santueri is on the other side of the island to most of the mountains; however, if you do venture to the east then this is out favourite climb in the area.

The scenery is pleasant but often obscured by trees in the early part of the climb, but it opens up at the top, offering great views across the southern and eastern coasts.

At the top of the climb you will also encounter the castle, a well-preserved fortifaction from the 10th century that was primarily used as a surveillance point to defend against attacks from the sea. The climb to Castell de Santueri is open throughout the year.




Roads & Traffic

The road is in very good condition throughout. It is quite narrow though so be particularly careful of any traffic on the descent.

There is not a lot of traffic on the road but, depending on the time of year, you may encounter a few cars on the climb. As in all of Mallorca, July and August are the busiest months.
