Palma de Mallorca is a major city on the Spanish island of Mallorca and the capital of the Balearic Island chain. It is located on the southern coast of the island on the Bay of Palma. The city is the cultural center of the island and has a busy commercial industry. Over half of the population of the Balearic Islands lives in Palma. The city offers many exciting outdoor adventures to test your limits. If you are interested in relaxing in the sun, Palma de Mallorca offers many white sandy beaches.
The Cathedral area of Palma is famous for the La Seu Cathedral which was built on top of a previous Arab mosque. The Arab Baths are the remaining monuments from the Muslim rule in Palma de Mallorca. The only surviving parts of the bath are two underground chambers. It is the city’s major architectural landmark. The cathedral is Gothic except for the facade. The facade needed to be reconstructed after an earthquake in 1851 left it considerable damaged and so it was redesigned and built in the neo-Gothic style, complete with flying buttresses in each of the soaring pinnacles.
Ballver Castle, Castell de Bellver, is the castle in the northwest side of the island. It is a Gothic style castle and was built in the 14th century for King James II of Majorca. The castle is one of only a few circular castles in Europe. The complex was used as a military prison from the 18th through mid-20th century. It is now controlled by the civilian population and is a main tourist attraction of the island.
Pueblo Espanol or translated to Spanish Village, is an open-air museum located in the district of Son Espanyolet. The village has replicates of traditional Pueblo houses, churches, fortresses, and other Spanish monuments. There are many activities for the whole family and a whole day can easily be spent in Pueblo Espanol.
