Castell Bellver, Palma de Mallorca

The Castell Belver, built between 1309 and 1314, close to Palma de Mallorca, was the summer residence of the Majorcan kings. It is a circular defensive building whose ground plan is punctuated by four massive towers. The two-story inner courtyard, framed by intersecting Gothic arcading, is charming.

The castle was built by Pere Salva, who also built the Palacio Real de La Almudaina in Palma de Mallorca.
