Although there are local service buses that stop reasonably close to the castle, having seen the steepness / length of the walk from these buses, I'm glad that we decided to combine this visit with the day of trying the explorer bus. The bus stops...More

We used the hop on tourist bus to get here. The castle sits on top of a hill overlooking Palma and I don't think I'd have enjoyed the walk. Not sure what we expected but the castle offers panoramic views across Palma and the bay....More

You have to keep reminding yourself that this lovely castle is 700 years old!!! We had a very enjoyable visit learning about the history of Palma. The views from a he top are incredible.

Great visit. The Castle has a small museum incorporated and you are free to wander at your leisure. Car parking is not plentiful but hop in hop of bus goes there. Great view over Palma.

If you are in Palma, you should visit the Castell. There is a bus that stops near it and then you just have to go up, up and up. It is tiring but the stairs are in good condition. Nice photo motives and I was...More

A very attractive castle on top of a (small) wooded hill in Bellver park and woods. There are paths to the castle from central and east Palma and from Genova in the hills
