Castle
“The Castillo de Bellver is set in a small wood/forest/park just outside of Palma. If you visit on a Sunday it is free to enter. It has a wonderful museum inside the castle that tells you the history of Mallorca. If you climb up to the top of the castle you get wonderful views across the bay of Palma. If you have taken the tram into Palma from Soller you can get a bus to the castle or near the castle and then hike up. If you have driven to the castle there is usually free parking spots available. ”
