Castell De bellver. Palma de Mallorca, Spain

Set in the hillside up in Palma within a park, the Castell de Bellver is a unique 14th-century circular castle, a striking and completely round fourteenth century citadel, the Catalan name translating it to “The castle with a lovely view”.

In the year 1300 King Jaume II ordered the castle built atop this hill known as 'Puig de Sa Mesquida'. The views from here to Palma and the Port of Palma are spectacular, over the surrounding woods and out to sea. Temporarely used as the Kings residence and a prison, you can still find prisoners’ graffiti etched into the stonework today.
The ground-floor Museu d’Història de la Ciutat (City History Museum) consists of some explanatory panels, Arab pottery, ancient Roman artefacts and seventeenth century ceramics.

Sundays, admission is free.
