Overview

Palma, the capital city of Majorca, is a sophisticated and stylish city with enough culture and class to rival that of Barcelona. Based on the Southern coastline of Majorca, visitors can meander through the narrow streets, admire the arts scene throughout Palma and get involved in this city’s lively society. It’s a change of pace from most of Majorca’s laid back northern resorts but Palma will keep you wanting to come back year after year.

Food and Drink

This city has a thriving café culture where visitors can enjoy anything from a cup of finely brewed coffee to a dish of local tapas. In the area of La Lonja, meals can be enjoyed close to the seafront or make time to have dinner in the pedestrianised area of Santa Catalina where restaurants are open through to the late evening - perfect for enjoying a glass of wine as the sun goes down!

Nightlife

Palma may not have the bright lights and rowdy nights of Magaluf but that doesn’t mean this city doesn’t know how to have a good night. Why not continue on from an evening meal in La Lonja and stroll into a jazz bar for an evening of live music. Alternatively, if you want to dance the night away, head to legendary Pacha for a night with some of the world’s top DJ’s!

Culture

Palma’s past has contributed hugely to what this city is today. The cathedral, for example, is a fine example of Gothic architecture and is the stand out centre piece of Palma. It took nearly 400 years to build and finishing touches were added by Gaudi. Next to the cathedral is Almudaina Gardens where palm trees and sculptured gardens surround the Royal Palace of Almudaina.
