Last Full Day in Palma

At our favorite cafe
It was Tuesday, Palmer was alive again(many stores were closed and the streets were quiet on Sundays and Mondays), many people were out and about. The weather was gorgeous, and we just wanted to soak it all up. We walked about thirty-five minutes from historic Palma to visit Castell de Bellver. Built in the 14th century for King James 2nd of Mallorca, this Gothic style circular castle was used as a military prison between the 18th to the mid 20th century. In the afternoon we strolled back to historic Palma, and just relaxed and chilled out at by then our favorite cafe.
