What to see in Palma de Mallorca
Considered a cultural and architectural wonder, the Historic Centre of Palma de Mallorca stands out thanks to its spectacular Medieval-style urban layout, which is one of the largest and best preserved in Europe.
This attractive Historic Centre is divided into two areas, known as Palma Alta and Palma Baja, which are full of alleys and streets full of the famous Majorcan stately homes known as Casals. One can also see modernist-style buildings, galleries, museums and emblematic shops of great antiquity, as well as popular bars and restaurants.
Surrounding Palma Baja are emblematic heritage monuments such as the Baluard de Sant Pere, which offers excellent views of the beach promenade and the wall. There is also the Museum of Contemporary Art of Palma de Mallorca, the Portal de Santa Catalina and the Torrent de Sa Riera.
Inside Palma Baja are the Church of the Annunciation, the famous Casal Balaguer, the impressive Gran Hotel and the Forn des Teatre.
In Palma Alta, there are other historical and heritage attractions such as its beautiful Main Square, emblematic shops like Can Joan's Aigo, the interesting streets of Can Savellá, Can Juny and Can Vivot and Cort Square, where the Palma de Mallorca City Hall is located.
The Historic Centre of Palma de Mallorca is not only full of important tourist attractions, shops and restaurants but is also an ideal meeting point for couples, families who want to enjoy a lively afternoon and tourists who seeking to admire one of the most exciting and interesting places in the Mediterranean.
