Our Yachting Land Adventure will introduce you to two of the most impressive monuments in the city - Bellver Castle and the "La Seu", the remarkable cathedral. There will also be time to wander a little in the old city. Our adventure starts at the Bellver Castle from where a superb view of the Bay of Palma can be enjoyed due to its privileged location. Built in a circular shape with rounded towers, it had both defensive and residential functions. An interior visit of the castle will introduce us to its various rooms inhabited by silent witnesses of its past. Your Land Adventure will go on visiting another emblematic monument of La Seu. Like many cathedrals in the Christian world, "La Seu” was built on the site of a pre-existing Arab mosque. Begun in 1229, it was not completed in its present form until 1601. You will be stunned by the interior where the nave is almost 150 feet high. During a restoration in the early 1900's, the famous Catalan architect, Antonio Gaudi was briefly involved and imprinted some features of his unique style on the interior, before abandoning his work after an argument with the contractor. We will also walk through the small Treasure Museum, which displays ancient manuscripts, paintings and religious items. Note that there are 80 steps up to the Cathedral. We have set aside some free time to enjoy a stroll in the old city before we return to the yacht.
