Palma is our wonderful capital and there is plenty to do here. Whether you love architecture, good restaurants or a little retail therapy Palma will not disappoint.
Start with a little Spanish grandeur with a tour of the Cathedral.It was built between the 13th and 17th centuries, and the great Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí redesigned parts of the interior in the early 20th century. If you are touring around 11am you should get to hear the organ.
Explore the lanes of the former Arab and Jewish quarters and you might come across the Arab baths. It should be time by then for a nice coffee or stop for lunch. You’ll find a few Michelin stars within Palma one of which is Marc Fosh – you can get a set lunch here for around €27. This is the ideal place to drop before you shop.
Just around the corner on Carrer de Sant Miquel you’ll find a fabulous range of boutiques and shoe shops where topping up the stylish side of your wardrobe will be easy. With autumn just about here, whether you are visitor or resident it is lovely to be buying a few new items for your wardrobe. After an afternoon shopping head back home to drop that shopping and perhaps a little siesta before hitting the town.
If you are looking for a lighter bite this evening try one of the trendy tapas bars around the city. These will be busy places around 8.30ish so grab a table somewhere you can see the atmosphere is great. Tapa Negra has great views of the marina from its terrace where you can order a nice glass of wine and a selection of their imaginative menu.
After your tapas wander down Paseo Maritimo and admire the yachts. A day in Palma can be whatever you like really – there is so much here for culture vultures, shopaholics, gastronomic adventurers and those that like to sit and people watch in a stylish city.
