Singer Sargent and the Italian Stallion

I love everything about this museum, the building included. There's something special about it.

They have an awesome collection of 19th-20th century European Art. I remember being very impressed with the Cezanne bathers and one of his Mont Sainte-Victoire paintings. I saw a lot of Duchamp too.

It also was the first place I really experienced American artists and portraits by Singer Sargent, Eakins, Austin Abbey ...

I can't wait to go back someday.

Bellver is a fortified castle at the top of a hill. It's really within Palma, removed from the Cathedral and what seems to me to be the 'downtown'.

The castle was built in the 1300's but hasn't served as a fort as much as it has been used for a jail.

2,5 euros regular entrance, 1 euro with student discount

The 20' trek uphill through the surrounding forest (Bosque de Beller) is good exercise. And the view is breathtakingly beautiful.

Advice: bring along a bottle of water and some sunglasses.
