Palma de Mallorca ExtensionsPalma is the capital of Mallorca and one of the largest cities in Spain. It was founded by the Romans and colonised by the Moors before becoming part of Spain. The city has a unique culture, combining relaxed island life with the modernity of a big city. The following are some of our favourite things to see in Palma:
Palma Cathedral (La Seu)This impressive gohtic cathedral includes modifications designed by Gaudi. The exterior is more impressive than the inside.
Bellver CastleThis small, intruiging gothic castle now doubles as the city's history museum. Worth a visit for the stunning views it offers of Palma.
Placa d'EspanaRecognised as the centre of modern Palma, Placa d'Espana is a centre of activity with local market stalls often set up here. From here you can also take the famous picturesque train journey to the town of Soller.
BeachesThere are huge beaches sprawling out from the city in both directions. These can get very busy in July and August but are pleasant and with good facilities in the rest of the year.
Old QuarterPalma is a Roman City dating back over 2,000 years and the narrow streets in the centre are shaped by various historic influences throughout that period. It makes a great place to wander around, admiring the architecture and stopping for a coffee.
