The Bellver Castle of Mallorca


Bellver Castle is one of the many Gothic fortifications that you can find in Mallorca. But this castle in particular has a charm and special mystery that we will go knowing little by little throughout this article.

It is a really beautiful construction that is located just three kilometers from the beautiful city of Palma de Mallorca. Its construction dates from the 14th century and in its beginnings it had a circular floor plan with three circular towers attached.

With the pass of time and the different battles that occurred due to the dispute over the lands, this castle underwent modifications until it became as we know it today.

Thus, once the castle was built and due to the introduction of the artillery, the upper terrace, the terrace of the barbican and, later, the terrace of each and every one of the towers disappeared because in these spaces embrasures were built to improve its defense.

It is a construction in which guided tours are made every day to discover all the stories that its sturdy walls hide. If you are spending a few days in our Insotel Cala Mandia Resort & Spa we recommend that you to take a car and enjoy a trip to this beautiful castle.

To spend the morning getting to know the history of Majorca and culminating the day tasting a few dishes of the gastronomy of the area is without doubt an exceptional plan we recommend.

If once in the restaurant you want to taste a dish of the area but you do not know what to order, we recommend you the fried Mallorcan, some Mallorcan snails, a Brut arròs, a tumbet or a Trampó coca, all accompanied by a delicious wine from the area … it will be delicious!
