History Bendinat Castle
Bendinat is an old Moorish farm estate, documented in the 13th century with the name ‘Bendinex’.
It has passed through the hands of several families since the 15th century, but it was the marriage between Pedro Caro Álvarez of Toledo and Elisabeth Szécsény Zichy-Ferraris which commissioned the neo-Gothic castle of Bendinat.
Access to the La Real monastery is through a door on the side of the church, there is a two-story cloister, with three point archways supported by spiral columns on the ground floor and fluted pillars on the top floor.
When walking around the heart of Palma, we come across many Majorcan patios that bear witness to history, art and time. One of the most emblematic of these can be found in Can Vivot, on Calle Can Savellà number 4.
The Crystal church is a structure of dazzling beauty, built upon concrete and iron ribs that sustain 39 stained glass windows, providing the building with a mystical aura. The windows depict scenes of nature and the cosmos, characterising the Franciscan order, combined with biblical scenes.
