Spain. Palma De Mallorca. Castell De Bellver

So, we have only a half of a day in

Palma de Mallorca

, at 16-10 we have our flight to Moscow.
In the morning, after breakfast, we left the room, handed over things in a baggage room and went to look at the city. And the first place we'd like to visit is

Castell de Bellver

. It has a round shape and is located on a hill. You can clearly see the whole city from there!
This is Castell de Bellver. Its layout.

We were lucky, there was a taxi parking to the left from the hotel.

There was a market in front of the hotel.

And there is a beach on the right behind that tree. Our hotel has a very convenient location!

We were lucky, as while a group of tourists was taking pictures of the neighborhood, we walked through the castle virtually alone. Then there were so many people!

Castell de Bellver has a round shape, it was built in 1300-1311.

Three towers of the castle are built in a circle
