Description

  • As the seat of power in Mallorca since time immemorial, Palma has come to congregate a vast collection of palaces, churches and plazas. Despite the ravages of time, much of the city has been immaculately preserved and it offers a wealth of sights and attractions. This fascinating open-top double-decker bus tour highlights the best there is to see from the atmospheric old town to the leafy boulevards of the modern shopping areas. You can hop on and off to explore at your leisure foot.

    You’ll see the city’s impressive Gothic cathedral, looming over a beautiful lagoon. Then check out the stylish waterfront, with its glitzy yachts and glamorous restaurants. See the ancient windmills of Es Jonquet, which are the centrepiece of an old fishermen’s quarter that is now heaving with trendy restaurants and bars. Hop off at Bellver Castle, a perfectly round Gothic fortress that was built in the 14th century to protect Palma and looks as good as new. Stroll around the complex (admission is optional) and enjoy breathtaking views of the city from this vantage point and look out at the city and marina.
