This was our first stop on the island. My husband loved visiting this museum. They have some many guns, knives,and machine guns displayed. They also have an Enigma machine. Lots to enjoy for the entire family.

There are lots of amazing places to visit in Mallorca. Unless you have a huge interest in military buildings with guns, this is not a must, in our view. As event arrangers we have been offered this fortress and have opted for other better choices.
