Default Castell del Rei

If anyone is interested in doing an organised walk to the Castell del Rei, Richard Strutt of Mallorcan Walking Tours has a few places available on Monday 29th May:

"Castell Del Rei + Vineyard visit 14Km (Grade C+)

This Moorish castle was always supposed to be inaccessible to invaders, but for over a decade private land closure has done that job!
Fortunately nowadays, with a permit which we need to request some days before the hike, we can re-discover a truly fabulous stretch of northern Mallorca.
The walk climbs gently through oak and pine forest eventually reaching the castle 490m above sea level.
Founded by the Moors and strengthened by Jaume I, this was the last fortress to surrender to Pedro of Aragon when the brief-lived kingdom of Mallorca came to an end. The castle has been abandoned since 1715.
The solitude of the Ternelles valley gives us a great opportunity to see resident black vultures
After the walk we round off the day by visiting a nearby family vineyard."
