Palma is a beautiful city and hides many little and big surprises.
A stroll through the old town with its magnificent palaces and patios, the Lonja quarter with the maritime trade exchange (today an art exhibition area) and the small restaurants and tapas bars or a visit to the lively shopping streets (pedestrian zone) as well as the Borne or the Av. Jaime III is a "must". And then there are the two marinas, with the Paseo Marítimo (promenade by the sea), and the masts of the sailing yachts, which give the cityscape an unmistakable character... You should plan at least one day for a visit to Palma!
The old town of Palma is bordered by large boulevards, the so-called Avingudes, which run where the city wall stood until 1902. The oldtown is characterized by many narrow and picturesque alleyways.
The harbour city is dominated by the cathedral La Seu, basilica Sant Francesc and dominated by the Castell de Bellver, a round fortress.
To the east there is a 9 km long beach (Platja de Palma), which reaches to S'Arenal, to the west there are the bays Cala Major and Illetes.
