Route by car to rent for Majorca city
Palma of Majorca
Palma de Majorca, or the Ciutat, as Mallorcans call it, shares its name with the bay where it is located, extending in a 15 km strip parallel to the sea and offering a range of cultural and tourist offerings which are far greater than that which any other city of its size could offer.
The Palma Cathedral (La Seo) rises from a site facing the sea, is marked by its large rosette, and is built to the highest levels of Palma monumental identity. Gaudi's creative talent is responsible for designing its interior, the product of reconstruction and The Lookout Door, The Royal Chapel, The Trinity Chapel, and The Cathedral Museum are noteworthy.
La Almudaina, a palace constructed on the Muslim Alcazar ruins, La Lonja, which today hosts the Museum of Fine Arts, or The Consulate of the Sea, the Balearic autonomous government headquarters, are examples of civil architecture from throughout its history and must-visit sites.
Travelling through the heart of the old town via El Paseo del Borne or La Plaza de Cort, a large quantity of noble palaces can be seen, including the Palacio de Colom, Palacio de Villalonga, or the Oleza Palace, and the Arab Baths which make up some of the few Muslim remains conserved in the city.
Trade has its place around Plaza Mayor, on the streets of La Rambla, La Avenida de Jaime III, where La Casa Berga is located today on Provincial Court and on La Calle del Sindicato.
The Bellver Castle puts the final touch on a visit. Located on the outskirts of the historic center on a hill offering an extraordinary panoramic view which was a defensive fortress converted into a Museum where a rich collection of classical pieces is exhibited.
