Palma, the pearl of the Mediterranean

In Palma, visitors can expect pulsating urban life as well as an insight into Mallorcan history. Of course, shopping and culinary delights are not neglected during a stay in the island's capital.

Attractions in Palma

The most important sights of historic Palma are the Gothic cathedral La Seu on the southern edge of the old town near the coast and the medieval castle of the Castell de Bellver.

The Almudaina Palace is located near La Seu - it is the Balearic residence of the Spanish royal family. The former fortress is of Arab origin and was already used as a residence by the Muslim rulers of Mallorca. After the Reconquista, extensive renovations and changes were made.

The Llotja de Palma can also be found in the immediate vicinity of the cathedral. This is a 14th century building that is one of the masterpieces of Gothic architecture in Mallorca and throughout Spain.

The Banys Arabs - the Arab baths - in Carrer de Serra are one of the few testimonies to the Moorish era. Only a small area of the baths has been preserved - the former steam bath with its column architecture and a dome, as well as a smaller adjoining room.

Museums and cultural institutions

Of course, there are also many museums in Palma. Lovers of modern art visit the Joan Miro house in the suburb of Cala Major. The Es Baluard Museum on Placa de la Porta de Santa Catalina is also dedicated to modern Spanish art.
