  • His visit is worth not only by the architecture of military defence which has the Castle, if not by the exhibition of the history of Mallorca and characters illustrious of the same, an illustrative tour on the island. And especially when I went on 3 March free entry, as they are the times one cannot believe it is

  • Admission is 4e, but Sunday is free, I recommend go on Sunday because it is so little for so much, in 3/4 time you can see it well. You have to go by car or motorbike

  • An interesting place to visit with spectacular views. If walking, be warned, there are many steps to climb. Tickets are purchased from a kiosk near the car park but there is no sign at the top of the long climb indicating this. On the bright side at four Euros it is not expensive. A sign directing walkers to the ticket kiosk at the top of the steps would be appreciated though.
  • not much going on, just an almost empty castle, they've closed the "back" entrance so you a long walk from ticket office to entrance. Free parking is great. its not all that big either, nice views from top.
  • What a view! Castell de Bellver was well worth the winding hill if you take a bike. A good amount of bike parking is available. Not obvious, but you have to get a ticket from the reception in the Car park before entering. A section of the walk around was cut off, unsure why. The inside of the Castell was amazing, rooms full of information and relics. Climb the stairs to the roof and experience what could be one of the best views in the whole of Mallorca! 360 degrees of beauty! Well worth the €4 entry fee!
  • Cool view of the city and port. Must see in Palma. Super inexpensive too. Parking on the street was easy.
  • Beautiful ancient castle with great view from the top. Free to enter. Surrounded by nice park.
