I have lamented before on this blog the sorry state that the Castell de Santueri near Felanitx finds itself in. Even though undertakings have been given by the Govern Balear and the Consell de Mallorca about one year ago to allocate money to acquire and restore the castle ruins, and despite the efforts of a plataforma to save the Castell, nothing much has been happening over the last few years, or make that, the last 200 years since the Spanish state sold the castle into private hands, in 1811.
Recently, the locks were changed on the main entrance to the castle precinct. Access seems even more restricted now than has been over the last twenty years or so. I do not know what is going on nor does anyone else here in the Felanitx area. With municipal and provincial elections due in three months time, nothing much will happen for the foreseeable future either, or so it would seem. It is all rather sad, really.
