Prince Eric's palace is where he lives with Ariel and Melody. A wall was put around it to protect Melody from Morgana and was destroyed after Morgana's defeat. Between the events of the wall being built and the events of the second movie, a dolphin was trapped. The castle may have been inspired by Chillon Castle, Switzerland.
