What to see in Palma de Mallorca
Among the large urban projects undertaken in Palma de Mallorca during the 20th century, the creation of the Promenade was one of the most important. It meant a consolidation of modernity in the city and is also an important tourist attraction.
The Promenade is officially known as Gabriel Roca Avenue in honour of the chief engineer of the important works carried out in the Port of Palma de Mallorca.
This attractive walk is located south of Palma de Mallorca, crossing the districts of Poniente, Palma Beach and Levante, as well as the neighbourhoods of Can Pere Antoni, Zona Portuaria, Son Armadams, El Jonquet, El Terreno and Portopí, among others, along about 5,500 meters in length.
In addition to offering a pleasant route, the Promenade allows one to admire the most emblematic monuments and buildings of Palma de Mallorca, the impressive yachts docked at one end and the beautiful views it offers to passers-by.
The Promenade can be explored on foot or by bicycle along the exclusive bike path running parallel to it. For this reason, it is an ideal place for families, couples and athletes.
Another reason for the enormous popularity of this beautiful Promenade is that along its route tourists can access the many bars, restaurants and commercial establishments located there. This makes it a natural meeting place of tourist and commercial importance.
