Capital of the Mallorca Island, Palma de Mallorca has a privileged climate during almost all the year. Counts on a historic center with great references to its culture, history and its art. Get to know the most artistic and cultural side of Mallorca through places full of magic and beauty.
Cathedral of Santa María de Palma: Known as La Seu, this 13th-century cathedral, with a history linked to the time’s monarchy, is one of the emblems of the capital. It stands out, not only for having one of the largest rose windows in the world known as 'The Gothic Eye', but also for the collaboration of the architect Antonio Gaudí in some of the reforms that were carried out.
Almudaina Royal Palace: Built in the 14th century for Jaime II, it became the seat of the court of the kings of Mallorca in the first half of the century. Inside, the Courtyard of Honour, the Arab baths and the Gothic hall stand out.
Bellver Castle: Designed as a palace-fortress, it would actually function as a royal residence and kings’ refuge. Built to be a fortress, its robust and defensive appearance stands out, surrounded by a moat; however, its interior is made up of fine and elegant decoration as if it were a palace.
Walls of Palma: partially demolished, in the 12th century they surrounded the entire city of Palma, on the old Roman base. Highlights include the Ses Voltes Wall, which was the last section of the wall built, and Dalt Murada, the section of the medieval wall.
Arab baths: converted into one of the great legacies of Muslim architecture on the island, these were part of a private residence. Even today the central room dedicated to steam baths is preserved, as well as the caldarium and a tepidarium.
Monumental Complex of Santa Cruz: located in the most traditional seaside neighborhood in the city, the Church of Santa Cruz maintains the typical Catalan Gothic architecture. The crypt-chapel of San Lorenzo stands out, without a doubt.
