The Old City of Palma, a magical place to live in

old city of palma

Narrow streets, picturesque buildings and culture in every corner – this is the Old City of Palma, a magical place in which to live all year round where you can find the most important monuments of Palma, as well as many other extraordinary locations.

A route through the Old City of Palma de Mallorca has to include a visit to La Seu, the Cathedral of Palma. Located in front of the sea and with the Parque de la Mar (“Park of the Sea”) right bellow it, the cathedral, protected by its ancient wall, is one of the most representative architectural constructions of the island. If we keep skirting the wall, the Almudaina Palace, the Arab Baths, or the Contemporary Art Museum Es Baluard will also be some of the places you will come across during your trip through the narrow streets of the historical center.

These alleyways, all of which are perfectly preserved, also hide old mansions and stately homes with extraordinary patios. Can Oleza, Can Bordils or Cas Marquès del Palmer are some of the most unique patios of 16th century Palma, at the peak of the Renaissance, which have become one of the city’s main points of touristic interest.

Despite the area holding a large touristic appeal for architecture- and culture devotees, fashion lovers will also relish finding an endless variety of shops here, making this place an ideal shopping destination. Haute couture stores such as Louis Vuitton, Corner or Hackett London are some of the names you will find on the Paseo del Borne and on Jaime III.

Lastly, let’s not forget the gastronomic offer of the Old City of Palma. Begin the day with a rich breakfast at the Cappuccino Palau March on Plaza de La Reina; enjoy some tasty tapas and a delightful glass of wine at the Bóveda or the Forn de Sant Joan of the neighborhood called La Lonja; savour a delicious dish at the Michelin-starred restaurant Simply Fosh; and wrap up your gastronomic route with an attractive cocktail in one of the area’s cocktail bars, such as Weyler Cocktail Bar or Nicolas Bar.
