Although it is 3 km distant from Palma, the Castle, built on a hill 140 mt. above the sea, certainly deserves a visit.
What makes this construction unique is the circular plant of the building, a sole example in Spanish architecture.
Inside the castle, two rows of arches overlook the circular court, ensuring a fascinating effect.
Ordered by Jaume II, king of Mallorca in 1309, the construction was completed in 1311. After being the seat of the monarchy (together with the Almudaina Palace), the castle was subsequently used as a military prison, and afterwards as mint.
Currently it hosts the Museum of History of Mallorca.
