Bellver Castle

Bellver Castle is located less than 3 kilometres from the old town of Palma. It was built at the beginning of the 14th century by order of King James II of Mallorca to defend the island of Mallorca from possible enemies. 

The architectural style of Bellver Castle is Gothic, and it is also the only circular castle in Spain and one of the few in the world. 

The translation of the castle’s name, Bellver, into Spanish is ‘Bella Vista’ (beautiful view), as you can contemplate the panoramic view of the entire City of Palma and Bay of Palma from the castle. This is why the castle’s location was strategic, as it was possible to see in advance when Mallorca was under attack.

Bellver Castle is undoubtedly a must-see on your list of tourist attractions for your trip to Palma.

Playas de Palma

One of the top reasons why so many tourists decide to visit Mallorca is undoubtedly its fantastic beaches with crystal-clear water.

There are many activities to do, and one of them is a visit to the Arab Baths in the heart of Palma’s Old Town.

Inside the Arab Baths you can find cold water rooms, steam ducts, and a chimney room, among other elements. 

The Cathedral of Mallorca, also known by Mallorcans as La Seu, is the top monument on the island of Mallorca. It is a Gothic-style temple built in the mid-14th century on the shores of the Bay of Palma. La Seu stands out for being one of the tallest cathedrals in Europe and for its main rose window, the largest of all Gothic cathedrals. The beautiful and grandiose main door of the Cathedral of Mallorca is simply stunning. Without a doubt, any visit to Mallorca is incomplete without seeing the spectacular Cathedral of Mallorca.
