Attractions in Palma

La Seu

Palma’s magnificent cathedral is the city’s main attraction and one of Europe’s finest Gothic buildings. All the figures on the facade fascinates, but the interior is the best, including Miguel Barceló’s 300-square-meter mural artwork in ceramics from 2007 in Saint Peter’s Chapel and Antoni Gaudí canopy model in full scale above the high altar


Plaça Cort

At Plaça Cort lies Palma de Mallorca’s city hall, but just a bit more interesting is the ancient, gnarled olive tree that might as well have stood there before the town even started to exist about thousands years ago.


Modernist houses

No city other than Barcelona has so many nice houses in the modernist style as Palma. Gran hotel, at Pl Weyler 3, is one of the earliest and finest, but you can also find about twenty other beautiful houses around the city center.

Palau de l’Almudaina

The fortress, on the opposite side of the cathedral, was built for the Moorish governor, but most of what is left today was built up by the Catholic King Jaume II in the 1200s – a mix of Moorish and Gothic styles. Visitors will see both the royal halls and Moorish baths. Admission 3.20 euros, free on Wednesdays.

The City Wall and the Parc de la Mar

The city wall around Palmas medieval center is best preserved on the stretch facing the sea. The current wall was built during the Renaissance and was made with beautiful bright yellow sandstone. It’s a nice walking area, just like the lovely park below.
