The Mallorca/Majorca region
There are many fiestas and celebrations throughout the year in Palma, from art nights in the streets, book fairs on Borne, to medieval events, firework displays and outdoor music, literary and even an international beer festival. The festival of the Kings which takes place at Christmas time is not to be missed.
Palma hosts several international sailing and cycling events ( many of the Tour de France cycling teams can be seen during their winter training on the island - and King Juan Carlos, the King of Spain together with Prince Philip competes in an annual regatta in the bay whilst the royal family holiday in Palma each summer ).
The famous Palma International Boat Show takes place annually in May.
A fun event called "Routa Martiana" is held each tuesday evening close to the apartment when all the tapas bars are open offering tapas with beer or wine for 1.50 euros each
We recommend a day excursion aboard the famous old steam train which departs from the central train station and journeys through beautiful and dramatic scenery to the NW village of Soller. This was the old 'oranges' route, built to bring the fruit to the port of Palma when Soller was a major orange exporter. On arrival in Soller you can catch the old wooden trams to the Port de Soller and unwind on the lovely beaches, or take a taxi and visit the beautiful unspoilt village of Deia
This apartment is located in one of the most popular streets in the centre of Palma's Old Town, which is inside the Old Town city walls. We are approx 50 metres from the famous Plaza Mayor and around the corner from the Town Hall of Palma. Cafe society, restaurants, tapas bars, all types of shopping - from essentials ( supermarket beneath Plaza Mayor ), department stores ( El Corte Ingles close by ) to designer boutiques on Paseo de Borne ( a stroll away ). The famous El Olivar fresh food market is also a few winding streets away. Fancy fresh croissants and ground coffee for breakfast? Lots of choice, perhaps a visit to Cappuccinos - 1 min stroll.
All historical sights, palaces, museums, art galleries, famous squares, the stunning Cathedral La Seu, the Port, the huge marina and several beaches are all within walking distance.
Also close by are the central bus and train stations with regular connections to nearby beaches resorts and many interesting locations. There is a fast bus which connects the airport to Plaza Espana, although we recommend taking a taxi from the airport which takes 10 mins and costs around 18 euros. Ferrys leave from the Port to the other Balearic islands as well as places like Barcelona further afield.
