Alaró, a tranquil town in Mallorca nestled in the scenic Tramuntana Mountain range, offers a refreshing escape from bustling tourist destinations. Its ancient architecture and winding cobbled streets exude traditional charm, a stark contrast to coastal resorts.
The highlight of Alaró is the Castell d’Alaro, a captivating castle that's a challenging two-hour hike from the village center. For an easier ascent, you can drive partway and park near the renowned Lamb restaurant, Es Verger. Once at the castle, you're treated to breathtaking views of Mallorca's countryside, stretching to the bay of Palma, all while savoring a well-deserved drink at the bar.
Nestled on the Tramuntana slopes, Alaró is a favorite base for hikers and cyclists, offering access to some of the island's best routes. The rugged countryside hosts renowned hiking trails, and numerous hotels and businesses cater to outdoor enthusiasts.
In the heart of Alaró, the town square beckons for leisurely evenings. From popular pizza spots to charming ice cream parlors, there's something for everyone. Exploring the cobblestone alleys expands your dining choices, reflecting the town's multicultural spirit.
Don't miss Alaró's weekly Saturday market from 8:00 to 14:00, where you can peruse local produce and clothing. Alaró's allure lies in its quiet charm, making it an ideal destination for travelers seeking a more relaxed and authentic Mallorcan experience.
