San Carlos Museum, Palma de Mallorca

Frozen in time centuries ago, San Carlos Museum originally protected Palma de Mallorca against enemy attacks from the sea. The museum housed inside the sandstone castle preserves artifacts from the island's rich military past, including parade uniforms, weapons, and helmets. In the 20th century, the castle served as a military hospital and prison. Today, a walk around the well-maintained fortification transports visitors to a time when pirates regularly attacked and ransacked the island. The castle offers sweeping views of the city and the surrounding area, so don't forget to bring your camera. Using our custom trip planner, Palma de Mallorca attractions like San Carlos Museum can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
