SPRING IN PALMA DE MALLORCA
What's new in the Mediterranean's most elegant capital ...
PALMA, the capital city of Mallorca, has more recently been described as the “new Barcelona” and the city’s town hall is now keen to promote the city's year round attractions, culture and wide range of restaurants and cafes. So here is a round-up of activities for this spring.
NEW SHOPPING GUIDE
A new shopping guide is now available in English featuring approximately 40 shops and 50 different cafes and bars. The guide offers the visitor a choice of 4 different routes around Palma which takes you to the most exclusive, most traditional, most historic and the liveliest shopping areas of the city. The guide gives an approximate time it takes to complete each route and features cultural points of interest.
The guide features 40 shops and 50 cafes, bars and bakeries.
NEW CITY TOUR
The Palma Monumental city tour takes visitors on a walking tour (lasting approximately two hours) around 19 different historic buildings and areas. The tour will now be supported by a twenty minute video which essentially is a documentary guide to Palma tracing its history from the city’s foundations by the Romans up to the present day. :
