Palma de Mallorca, the capital city of Spain’s Balearic Islands, offers exquisite sunshine and astounding beaches. Tucked in on the beautiful bay of Bahia de Palma, this thriving town is a perfect mixture of the Balearic Islands long and unique history and exciting modern culture. Visitors can spend time hiking through the 10th Century Arab Baths, taking a tour of the Royal Palace or exploring la Seo - an awe-inspiring example of Gothic architecture dating back to the 13th century. Besides these historic monuments, art lovers will also be amazed by numerous local museums. From Pablo Picasso to Salvador Dali, the collections at the Spanish Museum of Contemporary Art and the Joan Miró Art Foundation display some of the most important works of modern Spanish art. If you want to get outside of the museums and enjoy the beautiful sunshine, Mallorca offers a number of exciting outdoor activities. Visitors can climb through the trails of the Serra de Taramuntana Mountains and enjoy the beautiful landscapes, tour the many local farms and olive groves, or just head out on their own to discover romantic fishing villages and hidden beaches. No matter how you decide to spend your days though, they will always end with the world famous Balearic nightlife! The streets of Palma come alive every night, filling the warm air with music and giving visitors plenty of chances to dance, experience first-rate singers, musicians, acrobats, and theatre companies.
