TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

NAME: BELLVER CASTLE

The Bellver Castle is  located 3 km from Palma’s city centre, 112.6 m above sea level. It is dominating the bay and a large part of the island of Mallorca. It was built from 1300 until 1310 on the orders of king Jaume II.  It is a circular Gothic-style castle. There are 4 towers and a central courtyard. Originally it was built as a seat for the royal court of king Jaume II. It combines the needs of a palace with defensive elements. Its current owner is Palma City Council. A moat surrounds the castle and the Torre del Homenaje. In the 18th century became a prison. One of the prisoners was Gaspar Melchor de Jovellanos. Today it holds the city’s History museum. The surrounding forest is a nice area to take a walk.
