Bellver Castle


Description

Forming a perfect circle, it is one of the most original constructions in Majorca. Its terrace gives amazing views of the city and bay. That is the reason for its name, which means "beautiful view". The Castle is surrounded by an exterior moat and four large towers. It was constructed as a fortress and royal residence. On entry you arrive in the circular courtyard, the bailey. This gives you access to the two floors. The lower floor has rooms for soldiers, service and storage areas. The upper floor includes the royal rooms, the Throne Room, the Despuig collection of classical sculpture, the Chapel of San Marcos and access to the terrace. The terrace bridge takes you to the furthest tower, the keep. It is on four floors accessed by a narrow spiral staircase.
