Situated on the sun-soaked southern coast, Palma's grand stone structures rise high above the palm trees to remind you that Majorca offers so much more than just beach destinations. With scores of history, not to mention a lively art scene, you will soon find yourself immersed in the multi-layered vibrancy of the city.
Old meets new
Palma is a place where old and new combines in many surprising ways. Amidst the network of bustling streets in the heart of the city, you'll arrive at the beautiful La Seu Cathedral. Stop and admire its intricate fairytale spires that soar into the sky. Its sculptured stonework is complemented perfectly by the chalk-white circular fortress of Bellver Castle, also built in the 14th century.
From shopping to people watching
Modernity does not trail far behind in Majorca. You'll note that these historic attractions sit comfortably side by side with lively shopping areas like Passeig de Born and Avinguda Jaime III. They offer you everything you could ever wish for, from chic boutiques to huge department stores. Such a glamorous selection of shops and bars also attracts jet-setters, making the harbour a great place for people watching. Take a leisurely stroll along the seafront see the waters glisten in the evening sunlight, as luxury yachts, traditional fishing boats and cruise ships more up in this bustling port.
