Discover the 14th-century gothic Bellver Castle west of the city. It is remarkable due to its circular shape, rare among European castles.

See Lluc Monastery in the island’s northwest area. Take a walking tour to appreciate the remarkable architecture and listen to its famous boys’ choir. While in this part of the island visit the charming Port de Soller Lighthouse.
