“Good on a sunday.”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

The reason i say is because the entrance is free on a sunday and the place is very calm and not crowded at all, but its not that expensive on a weekday either. the best thing about this place is the views. they are splendid. also, its very well maintained and child friendly too.
plenty of free parking in the castle premises, so you cannot go wrong with this place. the exhibition and the museum is average, nothing exceptional.

“Lovely views over Palma”
Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

Visited the castle after catching the hop on/off bus. Worth a visit just to catch the panoramic views over the city and beyond. Reasonably cheap inside the castle but relatively small.

“Great sight, small castle, don't go on foot”
Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

Well... it was a nice view... but we walked there and it proved to be quite exhausting... could not find the castle and the people we continuously asked for directions could not speak a word in english... when we arrived we found a flight of stairs (not for the faint hearted). Once up there we bought the tickets (€4 each) and went in. The view from the castle is breathtaking but the castle is quite small and as Maltese we were not that impressed.

“A Castle albeit a small one”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

Arrived at Bellver Castle on the city sightseeing bus to discover it closes at 1pm on mondays (it was 11:15) but I had no reason to worry.

Its pretty small with a courtyard and two circles of rooms, the museum part is interesting review of the growth of Palma and Mallorca.

The view from the upper platform is very good and photographers will love it.

All in all though it was done in an hour and left me thinking its ok!

“Amazing View of the Bay and city of Palma”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

It was interesting and historic to view the castle. There is a small museum inside, but it has nothing to do with the castle. There are concerts held in the center of the castle.
