This is a hike that most can complete. It is strenuous and in combination with the summer heat you will get a healthy perspiration going. We drove to the restaurant and hiked from there around 9AM, which seems about right to avoid the worst heat...More

We started the hike from Orient and parked at the L'Hermitage hotel parking (3min walk). The route is beautiful! There are lots of old olive trees, sheep and even goats! It is important to bring water, eventually a small snack and wear sturdy shoes (...More

Take the steep, bumpy, potholed, zig-zag track from Alaro (first gear for 10minutes) up to the car park at Es Verger. From Es Verger, there are two ways to the castle, either back down the track until a footpath on the left (GR221) after 200Metres...More

Such stunning views, honestly breath taking. We read the other reviews and as we had a small sports car opted to take he trail from Orient rather than Alaró. If we had started earlier in the day Alaró would have been a fine choice. We...More

It's worth the drive and walk to take in the view......just fabulous! You can park at Es Verger or walk from Alaro centre if you really want to earn your lunch. Drive is on single track road that's quite pot holed but take it steady...More
