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.

  • Got no 4 bus from Placa de Espana then walked up a lot of steps in 38 degrees to reach castle. You need to head to carpark area to purchase tickets first. Lovely views from top, worth visiting

  • Cheep museum you can go! :)
  • The park on the hills leading up the the castle is gorgeous. The castle itself is much more impressive than it seems on the outside. It has an almost roman feel to its interior square, with nice arches, roof tiles and whatnot. The exposition on the history of Mallorca was very well done and very gripping. The roof was very nice and offered a panorama view of the whole city of Palma and the mountain range tot the west. Finally, admittance was cheap so great value visit overall
