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.

If you would like to have a one millone view over the city of palma you have to go there. The castle itself it not so special but the view is amazing. You can go there by car or take a 30min walk... more »
We were there many times and always come back. We were there with out kid`s and they enjoy it. Many people there and respect the covid norms. Happy day. more »
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!
