Welcome to Belvedere Castle
Envisioned by Central Park co-designer Calvert Vaux in 1869, this architectural gem sits atop Vista Rock, offering visitors sweeping views of the Park and its cityscape. Enjoy the gorgeous scenery—“belvedere” fittingly translates to “beautiful view” in Italian—along with fascinating details about the whimsical Castle, colorful pavilions, spacious plaza, and the rocky outcropping, while immersing yourself in the site’s rich history.
The Belvedere Castle Audio Guide is available in English and Spanish. American Sign Language is available in both languages.
