Must see · Castle · Specialty Museum
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.

  • Cool castle that overlooks the city. The interior courtyard is beautiful with it's circular design. Fairly reasonable price to get in (5 euro I believe?). Likely would spend 30-40m exploring here. Definitely make sure you make it to the top of the castle for the views.
  • A historical place with amazing view! Incredible location, above the city, you can see literally everything from above. There are two ways of reaching it out - by car or by foot. If you choose to go by foot - be prepared for a lot of stairs but it is really unforgettable!
