The capital of Palma de Mallorca is the largest city of the Balearic Island and it attracts millions of tourists, mainly from UK (Magaluf) and Germany (S’Arenal). The south part is more commercial with lively nightlife, while the north one brings picturesque landscapes. Even if you prefer the north part, it is a must to discover Palma capital, as the island is relatively small.
From Can Pastilla to Palma you can either go by bus for 1,50 euro, 50 minutes or take a cab like we firstly did, but paying 20 times more and yeah, lasting 15 minutes. The capital has everything from many old narrow streets winding towards Bellver Castle (14th century) and Royal Palace of La Almudaina to the fancy street Passeig des Born (very similar to Las Ramblas in Barcelona) which is now known as the Golden Mile hosting shops such as: Louis Vuitton, Mulbery, Hugo Boss, etc. The most famous landmark of the city today is one of one of Europe’s tallest Gothic structure the Cathedral La Seu, located to one side of the harbour and overlooks the seaside promenade.
Palma has the benefits of both a cosmopolitan city and an amazing seafront location, with a wide choice of fine property types and prices.
