According to legend, the castle’s name derives from an incident which took place in 1229 during the Reconquest of Mallorca, when King Jaime I set up camp on the land which now surrounds the castle. It is said that King Jaime I and his army, spending the night there after a bloody battle were treated to bread, garlic and oil. Having finished, the King uttered the words “ben dinat”, which in the Mallorcan language means “we’ve eaten well”.
According to historians, its striking architecture is owed to the tastes of Countess Isabel Maria Széchenyi, a native of central Europe, who imprinted the architecture style of old Prussia and Austria on Bendinat Castle, her one-time residence. Licence: ETV/9274
