With its array of bars & restaurants, stylish shops, palm-lined beaches and charming Old Town, Palma – Mallorca’s cosmopolitan capital, is one of the Balearic’s finest destinations. Surrounded by vast mountains and crystal clear waters, it is also one of the most beautiful.

An historic city, Palma’s most popular attractions include the impressive Santa María Cathedral, a Gothic landmark begun in the 13th century that overlooks the Bay of Palma. The adjacent Almudaina is a Moorish-style Arab fortress converted to a royal residence, and on a hilltop west of the city, the magnificent 14th century Bellver Castle boasts stunning circular architecture and exhibits that uncover Palma’s vast history.[ReadMoreMob]

With charming narrow streets, large squares and 18th century stone walls, the Old Town district is a joy to explore. Half of the island's population dwells in Palma, and its lively, all-year-round atmosphere centres on luxury hotels, trendy restaurants, cafes, shops and nightlife, alongside a thriving art scene.
