  • Panoramic view of Palma bay

Palma has a privileged climate all year round, and is famous for its sun and sand. But it also has a charming historic quarter with churches, palaces and stately mansions, and attractive courtyards (over forty in Palma).Read more...

What to see One of its most notable buildings is the cathedral (Sa Seu), which stands on the shores of the bay and the fishing port. Beside it you'll find the Almudaina Palace, today a museum. The Paseo de Sagrera is the site of important buildings such as La Lonja, today an exhibition venue; the Consulado del Mar and the Es Baluard Museum of Modern Art, with a collection comprising works by artists such as Cézanne, Gauguin, Picasso and Tàpies, to name just a few. Other museums in the city not to be missed include the Pilar and Joan Miró Foundation, the March Foundation and the La Caixa Foundation. Two kilometres from the centre of Palma you can visit Bellver Castle, standing on a wooded hill overlooking the bay. Beaches and active tourism Its beaches, yacht clubs and marinas are ideal for enjoying the sea and indulging in activities such as sailing, windsurfing and recreational fishing. In fact Palma is the venue for the King's Cup Sailing Regatta. Gastronomy Try some of the typical dishes such as 'tumbet' (vegetable casserole), rice dishes with fish or 'pa amb oli' (bread with olive oil and tomato); and for desert, what could be better than the famous 'ensaimada' pastry?
