Founded in 124BC, the capital city of Majorca is steeped in history.
The most obvious attraction is La Seu, the cathedral which was built between 1229 and 1346. This impressive structure is one of Europe’s tallest Gothic structures, standing at a height of 44 metres. Unfortunately we didn’t actually get inside during our visit but it is open to the public.
Wandering around the old town you will find narrow cobbled streets and architectural buildings dating back many, many years.
For something a bit more modern visit the Passeig des Born and Calle Sant Miquel, popular shopping areas of Palma featuring designer and high street shops.
Palma is also full of tapas bars, alfresco cafes and modern restaurants and if you’re after a local gift then the many local craft shops and stalls will not disappoint!
For boaters Palma doesn’t disappoint either with a number of marinas all within walking distance of the main city centre.
And just a short drive away you will find some idyllic beaches, perfect for chillin out on after a day sightseeing!
In fact you probably need a few days to really see this impressive city but we think we did pretty well to see what we did in the little time we had there. Check out our video below to see what we saw!
