Are you wondering what the best plans are for Palma de Mallorca? If you are going to spend your holidays in Mallorca, one of the places you must visit is its capital.

Cathedral of Mallorca
The Cathedral of Mallorca is undoubtedly the most emblematic building in Palma and one of the most impressive Gothic temples in the world. A visit to what is popularly known as “La Seu” is one of the activities that tourists like to do in Palma de Mallorca. The Cathedral of Mallorca is full of history, anecdotes and legends that are worth knowing. Moreover, the cathedral is a work of art in itself and even has a mural by the famous painter Miquel Barceló inside one of its chapels representing the gospel of the loaves and fishes.
The Cathedral of Mallorca is located on the wall that surrounds the old part of the city, in the bay of Palma and on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, in an idyllic landscape. The church also has the largest rose window among the European Gothic cathedrals. The large rose window fills the temple with light during the sunniest hours of the day, a sight worth seeing during your visit to the city.
Whether it is because of the beautiful area where the basilica is located, surrounded by wonderful gardens, because of its historical and religious importance or because of the beauty of the building and its interior, we assure you that a visit to the Cathedral of Mallorca is one of the best plans to make in Palma de Mallorca at any time of the year.
Palma de Mallorca Old Town
Another plan to make in Palma de Mallorca is to tour its historic centre. The old town of Palma de Mallorca is full of cobbled streets, medieval squares and historic buildings that are well worth seeing. So that you don’t miss anything during your visit, we recommend you plan your route well and the places you want to visit. In this area of the city there are plenty of tourist attractions, from buildings with history, art and historical museums, castles, palaces and much more!
Near the Cathedral of Mallorca is the beautiful Royal Palace of the Almudaina, former residence of the monarchs on the island. The exterior of the palace forms a beautiful landscape, facing the sea and next to the imposing cathedral. If you decide to visit the interior you can also visit the different rooms of the palace, very well preserved, full of tapestries and many more works of art. Another option, although somewhat more distant, is to visit Bellver Castle, an impressive fortress with a round floor plan, surrounded by a pine forest and with incredible views.
If, on the other hand, you are a little less interested in history and a little more in current and contemporary art, in the area of the old town of Palma de Mallorca you will find the vast majority of galleries on the island, as well as museums of all kinds and for all tastes.
