Palma the cosmopolitan capital of Majorca, is now able to offer the visitor a stylish City Break.
Palma has a magnificent gothic cathedral next to the historic old town which now has an abundance of new restaurants and tapas bars, an abundance of luxury boutique hotels and shops. Grand palaces, magnificent courtyards, exquisite gardens and its variety of architecture illustrate the capital’s multicultural history.
El Born (a small vision of Ramblas) is a good place to wander with its romantic tree lined boulevard.
Palma’s smartcard in 48 hour or 72 hour format (34 euro or 41 euro) gives free entrance to major museums and attractions, free transport and discounts in various shops and restaurants.
There are many attractive boutique hotels including Placa De Cort, Posada Terra Santa and the new luxury Sant Francesc Hotel Singlar.
NIGHT LIFE – SANTA CATALINA
There is an interesting nightlife scene around the old fishing quarter, Santa Catalina, with trendy new bars and restaurants. 10 minutes by taxi from Palma’s Passeige del Born or 15 minutes walk.
