Belevedere Castle was built in 1869 as a Victorian folly on the summit of Vista Rock, the park's second-highest natural elevation. Belvedere means 'beautiful view' in Italian and the castle provides great vistas across Central Park and City beyond. It was designed as an additional feature of the Central Park "Greensward" plan by the architects Calvert Vaux and Jacob Wrey Mould after they were appointed to oversee the park's construction in 1865.

Location: Belvedere Castle, 79th Street, New York, NY 10021, USA
