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. With our custom trip planner, Palma de Mallorca attractions like Castell de Bellver can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

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 »
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!
Clean and well organized, admission fee was resonable (4 euros adult), but lacking in history details and furniture/things to enjoy other than the view. Nice view, though. Of course, you do get your fair share of (poor) Graffiti art...there were signs of drones NOT being allowed, still they were roaming and buzzing freely above our heads.
Beautiful site, nicely presented and allows great views of Palma. Free parking available near the Castle and plenty of buses and tours available. A trip round with kids takes around 2hrs and there is a nice park and picnic tables further down the hill or a cafe on site.
Very nice and worthwhile stop on the Hop On/Off bus route. Definitely worth the small entrance fee to get the unobstructed views of the whole of Palma, the bay and harbour from the top of the Castle. If you’re afraid of heights, like me, be aware that the ramparts wall is about 4ft tall with a fair drop the other side but you don’t have to go right to the edge for a great view anyways. Probably give yourself an hour to get round and back for the bus, that should be more than enough.
