Sun-kissed Palma de Mallorca on the Balearic island Mallorca (Majorca) is simply a Mediterranean hot spot of fabulously aged culture decked in wondrous medieval alleys dating back to the 13th century, including island landmark, Le Seu Cathedral, which dominates the seafront and took more than 400 years to build – completed in 1601. Add to this a plethora of smart galleries, museums, artisan boutiques, busy marina, vibrant night-life and famed foodie haunts, and you begin to sense why Palma is loved by both the jet setters and culture junkies alike.
Moorish, Roman and Franciscan architecture weave a spectacular diadem of historic sites. Narrow alleys in honeyed stone, tiled courtyards, aristocratic mansions and baroque splendour throughout old-town Palma make this Spanish Balearic island both original and bohemian. Just 15 minutes from Mallorca’s international airport, Palma makes for a perfect urban pit- stop in combo with longer stays on the coast or in lovely slow-lane living of Pollença and the nearby Tramuntana mountains. Surf, turf & urban chill, this is Palma de Mallorca.
