If you're a fan of history, walking and beautiful sights, this is where you want to go. We drove up high up to south end of the castle. If you're lucky enough to find a parking spot there, it's a great place to start exploring the castle. The views over the Mediterranean Sea and the island of Ibiza are stunning.... More

Took the bus from St Eulalia which was cheap and took around 20 minutes. Castle is by the lovely marina where you can get boats to the islands. It is great to make the winding route up through the old houses to the castle at the top. Great views, museums and chapels to visit up and down. Worth a visit.... More

The history in this castle was alive. You you feel the history off tall ships coming in from the sea to rest the soilders guarding the battlements.

It was actually built on top of the 12th/13th C. foundations of the Almudaina fortified site & administrative seat of the Moors. The castle served as the Governor's residence... More

Ibiza castle is a must see & do experience, the views on the way up and photo opportunities are outstanding. Make sure you visit the Church at the top and have some tapas and wine at a Taverna on the way down.

Slight walk through Ibiza town but its worth it....on the way you get so see some fantastic little streets and shops and once you make it to the top the view is amazing. Tip. Try to do it in the morning or later afternoons when its cooler during the summer periods.
