Palma, the economic and cultural hub of Majorca, is a delightful base for exploring the island's many gold and white beaches. A former Moorish casbah, or walled city, Palma's Old Town is an appealing maze of narrow streets that are a delight to explore on foot. Hop on the Soller Railway for a 17-mile scenic trip, visit 14th-century Bellver Castle and the museum of contemporary art, and check out the nightlife.

Palma's Gothic Cathedral.

A craggy, limestone mountain range stretching the length of the northwest coast of the island.
The Serra de Tramuntana is a mountain range on the island of Mallorca, listed on the Unesco World Heritage list. Beautiful vistas of the Mediterranean along the coast. There are many almond and olive trees in this area. June and September are the best months to visit. One of the cities that we visited in this mountain range is Valldemossa. The old part is a quaint town with some narrow streets and pretty viewpoints of the town. Chopin lived here for a short time and some of his belongings are still in the museum.

We visited here during a short break to Palma. We had read the reviews on here and were keen to see it for ourselves.
The market is full of fruit and veg stalls, fish and meat stalls. All very well presented and clean.
There are a couple of restaurants upstairs and one of them You Buy We Cook actually cooks your purchases for 3euros 50 cents per person. They even have very pleasant wine to drink with your food. We bought 1/2 kilo of prawns and the ladies cooked them for us and even provided some tasty vegetables to accompany them. Simply delicious. Well worth a visit.

For families seeking a beautiful beach experience with practical surroundings, this beach is for you. Turquoise waters and a white sandy beach greet you once you walk down the path from the paid parking (5€) to the beach. The beach is quite large, it is more like a Cala. It was crowded, (normal during the high season) but bearable. The snack bar was great, serving hamburgers, hot dogs, etc. at moderate prices and with friendly service and smiles. For those seeking more privacy, there are some rock areas and cliffs to climb and snorkeling is not bad. Note: it is a short walk from the parking which could be a little difficult for some people especially when returning from the beach as it is a slight climb.

Top tip is to buy the 'Spiritual' ticket which, at 12 euros for a senior, gives you entry to six religious sites in or near Palma, including the mighty Gothic Cathedral which dominates the city. I got to four of the sites and still saved a fortune. Inside Sant Francesc is a haven of peace. There is a steady trickle of visitors but it's not busy and you can enjoy virtual solitude inside. The cloister is glorious, shady and pleasantly cool, and the basilica itself is full of interesting detail including a magnificent organ. I confess the richness of the decoration seemed a bit of a mismatch with St Francis' focus on poverty, but you have to take it on its own terms. Definitely a place for quiet enjoyment in a crowded city which is otherwise not strong on peace and quiet.

Housed in a former mansion, this museum's displays include the works of twentieth century Spanish artists such as Picasso, Dalí, Miró, Juan Gris and Antoni Tápies.
A very centrally located art gallery which has free entry. During our visit there was an excellent exhibition of the wonderful cartoonist and artist, Lyonel Feininger who escaped Germany when his work was declared ‘degenerate’ by the nazis.
Don’t miss the associated bookshop at the entrance.

A wide, tree-lined avenue full of bars, pubs and cafes: a good place to start your evening.
It’s a beautiful open boulevard surrounded by trees and a fantastic atmosphere. At its sides we will find magnificent terraces and designer shops, walking through is a pleasure.

The water games of the Fountains, the very green trees and bushes, the whole garden with sitting benches for a rest in the shadow, populated with nice statues, everything makes this place an oasis in the middle of Palma de Mallorca, near to the great La Seu Cathedral
