The Cathedral of Mallorca, the Bellver Castle or the Almudaina Royal Palace are some of the essential points on a visit to the city ​​of palm. To fully delve into the culture of the capital of the Balearic Islands, we can also discover its interesting museums, such as Es Baluard or the Fundació Pilar i Joan Miró. On the other hand, there are also other museums that we can access completely free of charge:

Military Historical Museum of the Castillo de San Carlos

Between 1610 and 1612 an architectural complex was built to defend the maritime zone of the city of Palma from the attacks of pirates and Berbers. The result (after several extensions) was the Castillo de San Carlos, a large structure with bastions at the corners. Today, the place hosts a military museum where pieces that cover a wide range of time are exhibited, from the Middle Ages to the 20th century. For example, we can see weapons, uniforms and models.

Hours: Tuesday to Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Closed Mondays and holidays.
