The capital of the island of Majorca is located in the bay of the same name and enjoys an excellent climate all year round. Known for its sun and beach tourism, it also has an attractive historic quarter. The most beautiful monuments are surrounded by fishing boats, pine forests and palm trees. The landscape of the island is full of coves, beaches and cliffs on the coast, and inland you will find typical towns and mountain ranges up to 1,500 metres high. The variety of the landscape and culture invites visitors to explore every corner of Majorca and to find out more about the gastronomy of the island.
The city of Palma was once coveted by Romans, Moors and Berber pirates. Visitors will find old churches, palaces and noble mansions with charming courtyards (there are over 40 dotted around the centre of Palma). The elegant Gothic Cathedral of Palma is built in a spectacular location on the bay and next to the fishing harbour. The cathedral has very high vaults; although what surprises the most is an impressive rose window and the peculiar wrought iron baldaquin, by the Catalan architect Antonio Gaudí. From the Plaza Mayor, a square with great modernist influence, the great avenues and boulevards that make up the new suburbs of Palma de Majorca unfold: the modern city. And also, returning to the coast from Plaza Mayor, you can go across the historic quarter and visit Plaza de Cort, the City Hall, the Palace of Vivot and the church of Santa Eulària. Another way is to walk through the old Jewish quarter and the district of Sa Calatrava. Two kilometres away from Palma's city centre is the Castle of Bellver. The castle is located on top of the wooded hill that dominates the bay. The precinct is the current home of the Municipal Museum of History.
Palma's pleasant year-round temperatures are an invitation to enjoy a range of open-air sporting activities, and particularly golf and nautical sports. This Mediterranean city has five beaches and eight bathing áreas where thanks to the mild temperaturas, swimming is always a pleasure. Golf lovers have at their disposal five courses (all with 18 holes) perfectly equipped and located in beautiful settings. Palma is also a veritable paradise for lovers of the seaside, thanks to its five beaches, 8 bathing areas and 9 yacht clubs and marinas, which are ideal for those who want to explore the city from the coast and for activities such as sailing or sports fishing. Another fun way to explore Palma de Mallorca is along its bike lanes. Fans of cycle-touring and hiking will find these are the perfect means of getting around the island, thanks to the network of signposted routes. From Palma, a route round the island of Majorca provides the opportunity to see many different landscapes and the Sierra de Tramuntana mountains, with over 1,400 metres high. Discover beautiful towns such as Valldemossa, Sóller, Deià, Alcúdia, Pollença, Manacor and amazing parks as Dragonera Nature Reserve and Archipiélago de Cabrera national park.
