Palma is a great centre of operations to stay. And, from there, move freely and make excursions with which to discover the secrets of the rest of the island.
Dear #Travellers, hold on because we are going to take a virtual tour of the capital … in case you decide to travel to Palma de Mallorca!
Palma in one day
Palma is a medium-sized city. We are not saying that it is small, but that it is not a big capital. What makes it possible to discover it in a single day.
We recommend you start at the Plaza de la Reina. From there a beautiful walk through the gardens of s´Hort del Rei. If we continue our way following the old city wall we will arrive at the great Cathedral of Santa María de Palma de Mallorca. We can get a wonderful panoramic view of the Parc de la Mar and the bay.
After contemplating the cathedral, we follow our path along Palau Reial street that will take us to the Plaza del Cort, where the emblematic town hall is located.
Now we will move towards the sea. First, we advise you to visit the old fish market, ending our tour of the area with a visit to the crypt and museum of the Church of the Holy Cross. The Es Baluard Museum of Contemporary Art is another option that we propose for your visit.
On the night, we recommend dinner on the always lively Paseo Marítimo.
If we want to do tourism in Palma de Mallorca, the first thing we have to keep in mind is that you have to visit the main buildings of the city’s historical and artistic heritage.
#PalmaDeMallorca has an artistic and cultural content that well deserves to be known in-depth and that will surprise those who have always seen in Palma de Mallorca a place of #tourism beach.
Next, our recommendation of the two most incredible cultural routes on the island of Mallorca.
- A beautiful Gothic city in the Mediterranean. Palma has a great Gothic legacy, the result of its historical importance during the Reconquest and subsequent establishment of the Kingdom of Mallorca. Throughout the city, you will find numerous monuments, stately homes and streets so loaded with history. For example, Sant Miquel street or numerous religious buildings such as Santa Eulàlia, Sant Francesc or the Cathedral of Palma itself.
- The impact of Catalan Modernism in Palma. Modernism arrived in Mallorca because such representative figures as Gaudí moved to the island to make a commission. The generation of local architects, influenced by Catalan modernism, left their mark on a set of buildings such as the Gran Hotel de Palma de Mallorca or the El Águila stores.
