Uncover the secrets of the beautiful Palma

Palma serves as the capital city of this independent community within the Balearic Islands

Be sure to visit the Marivent Palace, which is a beauty to behold. Prince Juan Carlos I of Spain had the honour of receiving this Palace as a gift from the Palma people. The royals have since made Palma their summer vacation destination. Other notable Palma sights are jelly fishes and sea urchins and their marvellous displays in Palma’s electric blue seas.  

Lovers of sports will definitely enjoy a visit to Palma as its most important sport is football. Its local football team, which plays in the famous La Liga, is known as Real Mallorca and its stadium is located within the city of Palma. All the different types of sea sports imaginable are practiced and displayed during the tournament Trofeo Ciutat de Palma. Tennis freaks will also relish the chance of playing with locals as well as other holiday makers.  

Where to stay is not something you should worry about as the city avails several accommodation options to suit every taste and budget. Palma’s city is full of palaces and mansions that have been transformed into nice hotels. From intercontinental hotels to moderate and low budget inns, the city of Palma has it all. Among the popular hotels in Palma are Portixol Hotel, Gran Melia Victoria, Barcelo Puro Hotel, Pueblo Park, Mirador Hotel, Valparaiso Palace, Amic Horizonte Hotel, Dalt Murada, Costa Azul Hotel, Tryp Bosque, Iberostar Royal Cristina and several others.  

During your stay in Palma, you will be sure to find excellent restaurants and bars located in Sa Llotja. Taberna La Bóveda and Xim’s Bodeguita are two of Palma’s most frequented bars.
