A circular-shaped castle built with a dual purpose, Bellver Castle 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.

  • It is always interesting to repeat a visit Belver Castell. There is an impressive collection of hotspots from the time of Roman domination. You can travel up to centuries and siglis in the past and imagine all esse mystery and essas unspeakable things of every day of those men and women of peculiar nature. The port of Palma are to photograph and perpetuate. It is a time to breathe the air among the pines and the history destas towers and their secrets.

  • Must visit place. Very well preserved and special historical monument by its round shape. The views of Palma are spectacular. For the Palma is an icon of our island.

  • From the castle there is a wonderful view of the entire Tree. I recommend to leave the car in the city and go up on foot. Although it's uphill but run for it. Also the show is admittedly small, but nice. Admission was, perhaps, the least expensive of the whole of Mallorca, 4 euros.
