Bellver Castle is a Gothic style castle located on a hill 3 km to the west of the center of Palma de Mallorca. It was built in the 14th century for King James II of Majorca, and is one of the few circular castles in Europe.
First serving as the residence of the Kings of Majorca, and afterward long used as a military prison throughout the 18th to mid-20th century, it is now under civilian control, being one of the main tourist attractions of the island, as well as the seat for the city's History Museum.
