The Amazing Architecture Of Palma Cathedral
Marvel At The Architecture
Palma is renowned for it's excellent architecture. The most popular and undoubtedly most important must-see architectural wonder would be the Cathedral (Le Seu) where you will get the chance to witness works by Gaudi and Barcelo. Other places to see include the Bellver Castle, Basillica De Sant Francesc and Llotja.
Take In The Views Of Serra De Tramuntana
One of the most popular outings for visitors to Palma, is a journey through the many glorious mountain ranges and coastal views of Serra de Tramuntana. The views are nothing short of spectacular from this World Heritage Site. Whether you head out in a hire car or take public transportation, the drive is well worth it and you will get to walk away with not only some incredible pictures but also a new perspective on what makes Palma so remarkable. We stopped at Valldemossa and Estellencs - two gorgeous little villages in the mountains.
Pay A Visit To Palma Aquarium
For those who are travelling with little ones, the Palma Aquarium is a definite must do. Both adults and children will enjoy learning about the beautiful marine creatures, and wonder at awe at the big fish and sharks. This is one place that is sure to keep the kids entertained as well as allow them to learn and have fun at the same time. Palma Aquarium also works to support the environment and have worked on many ecological campaigns such as the one to save the blue fin tuna. We thought it was much better than we expected!
Explore The City By Bike
If your feet are sore from walking around the Palma Aquarium, consider exploring the city by bike! For only 5 euros you get a fantastic way to look at some of the main attractions in town along with a great work out. There is a cycle path along the marina so this is a great area to explore whilst marvelling at the beautiful boats and cruise liners in port. When tired stop at a cafe for a much needed cold drink and a spot of lunch.
Discover The Shops, Cafes And Restaurants

Where we stayed - Hotel Costa Azule. A fresh modern, well priced hotel with views over the marina.
Where we ate - Ribello, a lovely Italian restaurant, Appetite, a fusion inspired eatery and Koa, an excellent grill and cocktail place. If you fancy trying nearly 50 wines by the glass and tasty tapas I recommend the tapas bar Wineing.
Top Tip - It's worth hiring a car to explore the island. Bus services are excellent and reliable too so consider this if you don't drive.
