Majorca

It gets pretty hot, and busy in the Med in the summer, so we took a crack at Majorca in September 2015.
It was still hot - almost 30 degrees C, 90 degrees F, but not quite as busy.
We stayed in Palma, the capital which is a very cool city and lots of fun.
And, a cruise ship destination.





We took a tour of the "Castell de Bellver", built in the 14th century.
It is one of the few circular castles in Europe,
and was mostly used as a military prison.



We made it inside and got a sense of its scale.





Also took in some great views....



...all around.



Another major attraction is the Cathedral of Santa Maria of Palma,
or simply the Palma Cathedral




It is 121 meters long, 55 meters wide and its nave is 44 meters tall.
Construction began in the year 1229, and was finished in 1601.
