"Old stones and newer ones around Arta" Artá by Bigs
Artá Travel Guide: 17 reviews and 82 photos
The earliest inhabitants of Mallorca lived here. You can visit this old surroundings of a Talayot village and get an impression of life in those days.
You can see this fortress from far away. It saved Arta from many pirate attacks. From the walls you get a nice overview on the surroundings. Pirates were spotted early, as you can see the bay of Cala Rajada from here too.
Under the fortress you will find this nice church which is still overlooking the town. There is a nice stairway leading there.
Also worth the adventurous drive is the view over the Bay of Alcudia from the Ermita de Betlem!
- Pros:The view from the fortress is really nice
- Cons:It's quite steep everywhere
- In a nutshell:A lively town you should have seen
As I said before, you can drive right up to the parking underneath the fortress............ more travel advice
