The castle (located near the middle of the park at 79th Street) sits atop Vista Rock—the second-highest natural elevation inside the park—and provides unparalleled views of the aforementioned location

Belvedere provides the highest and best views of the Park and the adjacent cityscape. The castle's name is fitting, because it translates to "beautiful view" in Italian.
