Majorca

Holidays

The capital of Majorca, Palma is a wonderful choice if you're looking for an all-round destination for your next getaway. The city is a treasure trove of cultural and historical attractions, while also being close to some of Majorca's pretty beaches. Add plenty of sunshine into the mix and you really do have a fantastic destination for all kinds of holidaymakers.

Within Palma itself are numerous beautiful monuments that are well worth exploring, in addition to a wealth of shops, restaurants and bars - as you'd expect in a vibrant and thriving city. Just a short distance away from the hustle and bustle are some glorious stretches of sand where you can soak up the sun and go for a refreshing swim.

Must-visit attractions in Palma

There are several outstanding landmarks that you should make the effort to see during your city break in Palma. The following is a brief overview of some of the best.
• Majorca cathedral - This is a real gem of Gothic architecture and its position overlooking the sea only serves to make it more picturesque. The facade is incredibly ornate, while inside are artworks by Miquel Barcelo. Famed architect Antoni Gaudi was also involved in some reformation work on the cathedral in the 20th century.
 La Almudaina Royal Palace - Another of Palma's distinctive landmarks is the Almudaina Royal Palace. This gothic castle was constructed on the site of an earlier Moorish fort and used to be the seat of Majorca's royal family before the island became part of the kingdom of Aragon.
• Bellver Castle - The circular Bellver Castle, which watches over Palma from its hilltop location, is well worth a visit. While it initially served as a royal residence, it was converted into a mint in the 19th century.
• Banys Arabs - This 10th-century Arabian bath house is the only building in the city that remains from its time under Moorish rule. There are two rooms and a small courtyard that are open to the public.

Getting out and about in Palma

If you're keen to balance your sightseeing with time spent soaking up the sun, head for Playa de Palma - the city's largest beach. This long sweep of sand is backed by restaurants, cafes and bars, so there's something going on here all day and into the night. This isn't the only beach in Palma, though - Ciudad Jardin, Cala Major and Can Pere Antoni are a few of your other options.

Should you fancy some adventure, consider travelling just outside Palma to visit Aqualand - a water park boasting an array of slides for thrill-seeking adults, as well as attractions that are perfectly suited to children (this is a great option for families on holiday in Palma).

To really escape from it all, see if you can join a tour to the Cabrera Archipelago Maritime-Land National Park. This group of islands is approximately 10 km south of Majorca and is a wonderfully peaceful place to visit if you fancy getting away from the crowds and hustle and bustle of city life.
