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.
  • A pleasant walk from the bottom of the hill, and a nice city view alongside the steps, The view is just mesmerizing towards the cathedral and city ports. This castle is one of the nice architecture, I loved it surely you will love it. When you go on top of the castle, you will fall in love with the place you are standing and staring at.
