EXCURSION TO SANTUERI CASTLE
The Santueri Castle, located to the south east of Felanitx and over the cliffs that are also recognized by the name of Santueri, at 400 meters of height, is one of the three rock castles that the island of Mallorca preserves. It became a Muslim redoubt of resistance in the period of James’ I conquest.
In order to access the Santueri Castle we need to take Felanitx’s road in direction to Ca’sConcos.
