Meaning ‘High Town’, Dalt Vita is exactly that but well worth the walk; just make sure that you are wearing comfortable shoes!
With great, panoramic views coupled with stacks of history, the entrance is dramatic to say the least, with a drawbridge flanked with Roman stone statues which lead the way into a cobbled courtyard.
The back entrance to Dalt Vila, Port Nou, is less steep than the front and this means you can saunter along at a slower pace and really take in all the detail on offer in both stone and wood.
With gift shops, art galleries and private chapels to wander around, you can be forgiven for feeling like you have been transported back in time and you can buy local crafts and unique works of art to take some of the magic back with you.
Dalt Vila also has a breath-taking hotel for you to stay in; La Torre del Canonigo. Its guests are treated to spectacular views of the harbour as well as the castle itself and you can walk down from here to Dalt Vila’s many exquisite restaurants and bars, where you can taste real, Mediterranean food by candlelight, whilst looking at a castle!
If museums are your thing, then make sure that you check out Museo Puig des Molins; home to archaeological collections form the Carthaginian era, including burial grounds and even some Roman artifacts.
