A circular-shaped castle built with a dual purpose, Castell de Bellver was once the royal seat of James II of Mallorca. The central courtyard surrounds a well that leads to a water-storing cistern below the castle's foundations. The impenetrable walls also once served as a military prison after James II's reign, but nowadays the distinctive architecture attracts visitors from all over the world. The island's history museum resides inside the castle.

  • Located not very far from the city center and you can either take a bus or car. If you go by bus then you need to take some 500 steps to reach the castle. The castle has a good view over the Palma city and port. They exhibit inside the castle all it's history. When you go by bus and reached by steps to the entrance, first go to the parking area where the tickets are sold and then you can enter the castle.
  • The little hike up to the castle is short and surrounded by nature (even though you're so close to the city). Once reached the outside of the castle you have great views of the Palma's landscape. At the time of this review I didn't have to pay for a ticket. Once inside, you have 3 floors, all converging towards the inner courtyard with rooms all around. Must go: the rooftop from which you can admire the beautiful surroundings!
