For those who rarely leave the pool or beach Palma will be a breath of fresh air; the city is a cobbled gold mine of luscious tapas restaurants, world class museums and chic cocktail bars.

The more artistically minded will enjoy the many hidden gems in Palma’s maze of caringly preserved/19th Century streets. The profusion of galleries and museums means culture oozes through every alcove in Palma and its architecturally sound aesthetics juxtapose wonderfully with its contemporary art scene.  The city itself was built in Roman times and, despite having been reconstructed several times throughout its deep history, there are still traces of its influence within the city’s old quarter.

Palma cathedral (officially known as ‘La Seu’) is the architectural epicentre of this culturally abundant city and a must see for all who venture to the capital; however, it really comes alive at night when the seafront boulevard lights up and allows the city to exude its naturally enchanting atmosphere. Needless to say, Palma isn’t all museums and exhibitions as is proven by the seamless coupling of stylish cocktail bars and sensuous restaurants, which results in one of the best nightlife scenes this remarkable island has to offer.

Part of Palma’s intoxicating charm is its infinite pool of quirky locations to discover:  with countless exhibitions, activities, bistros, carnivals and other attractions a trip to Palma is a new experience every time you go. Furthermore, in the summertime Palma is host to an array of thrilling festivals and exhilarating street parties, including the fiery spectacle that is Nit de Foc and the popular and family orientated Sant Agusti.

Ultimately, Palma is for everyone; a place bursting with hundreds of diverse goings-on: from shopping at its copious designer stores to taking a ride on the historical city scooter tour; from enjoying a cappuccino in the sun to viewing artistic masterpieces; from listening to the local bands in the streets to just simply basking in this city’s seductive ambiance, you’re assured to have a memorable time.
