view of Palma    
In the west of the capital on a hill there is situated the castle 'Castell de Bellver'.
It was built by King Jaume I. in 13th century and he was resident
there in 1309 while the Almudaina Palace was under restauration.
Despite the long erection period of twelve years the castle was used as a residence
for only three months. During Inquisition it became a jail. After all you might have here
the best view of Palma you can get. On the picture you notice the dominating
character of La Seu Cathedral beyond of the harbour.
