3.7
Alaró is a small municipality in the district of Raiguer on Majorca, one of the Balearic Islands, Spain.HistoryIts origin dates back to the Islamic period. The documented history begins in the thirteenth century, during the reconquest of Mallorca, with its Castillo de Alaro being the center of this. The Castillo de Alaro was built by Christian inhabitants to ward off invasions from pirates.The town was the first to have an urban electricity network on the island, this event happened August 15, 1901. Currently, electric distribution is unified with the rest of the island, but as a sign of how important it was for the island of Mallorca, on May 8, 2000, the Consell Insular de Mallorca marked the tower of the old factory as a monument of cultural interest.GeographyAlaró is bounded by Buñola, Escorca, Lloseta, Mancor de la Vall, Binissalem, Consell and Santa María del Camí.Points of interestAlaro Castle is probably one of the most classic excursions in Majorca. Most arrive to the castle by foot from the village or by parking at the very traditional Es Verger restaurant, known for its lamb dishes. The last part of the road starts in Es Verger or Es Pouet and reaches the gateway of the castle; it is an old bridle path used by donkeys to carry loads up to the castle. Walking under the shade of the evergreen oaks along an old stone path, one approaches the majestic rock crowning the mountain. Es Vergeris is a well-known lamb restaurant between the village of Alaro and Alaro Castle. Alaro is in Majorca.
