Palma has wonderful historic parts, where you can stroll through cobbled streets under shady palm trees, stop off at a cosy restaurant for lunch or explore the many small souvenir shops, before heading off to Palma’s main promenade to go shopping at the designer fashion outlets. At night Palma comes to life with stylish bars at the Passeign d’es Born throwing open their doors to clientele from around the world, who have fallen under the Mediterranean spell of Mallorca.
Palma’s ancient roots can be seen throughout the city, none more so than along the ancient city walls that once fortified the city. At the top run galleries and a walkway provides wonderful views. The architecture ranges from 10th century to modern 21st century splendour. The 17th century city hall, also known as Ajuntament, is located at the Placa Cort, a vibrant shopping district of Palma.
