This impressive 14th-century fortress played a strategic role in the island's history.
A Gothic masterpiece dominating the horizon.
Between the Tramuntana and Pla mountains, this distinctive 14th-century castle looms on the horizon. It was King Jaume II who ordered its construction, resulting in one of the most striking and representative examples of the Majorcan Gothic. Its round shape and arches connecting the building with its towers make it stand out in particular. Its interior is so vast it seems boundless. On the ground floor next to the courtyard is the Palma de Mallorca History Museum. On the next floor, the chapel of San Marcos and the Hall of Jovellanos are a must to see, and on the upper floor you can get to the outside ramparts from which soldiers defended their position in wartime. When you're up here, you'll also understand why Bellver means 'beautiful view'.
