What makes Bellver Castle stand out, apart from its panoramic views, is its unique architectural design. It’s one of the few circular castles in Europe. Built in the 14th century for King James II, it has served various roles over the years, from a royal residence to a military prison. The castle’s design is symbolic, representing the world as it was known during its construction. Today, the castle houses a history museum detailing Palma’s evolution. I took Bus 50, which dropped me close, leaving a short uphill walk. As you ascend, the views get progressively better, offering photo opportunities at every corner. By the time you reach the top, you’re greeted with a 360-degree panorama of Palma, its marina, and the distant mountain ranges. The history, architecture, and the vista together make it a must-visit. Afterward, I recommend taking a leisurely walk around the surrounding forest, a great way to wind down and connect with nature.
