Tourism in Palma de Mallorca is an essential part of city life.

If you have considered enjoying a holiday like no other, a trip to Palma de Mallorca is a wise choice. Discover enchanting corners full of history and legend, or embark on a trip along the coast, recalling the journeys of those who came to the paradisiacal island via its gulfs and bays.

Tourism in Palma de Mallorca: What to see?

Tourism in Palma de Mallorca is varied and enjoyable: there is something for everyone! It is a warm coastal city, and there is a pleasant climate during the day that invites you to do many activities. Impress your senses with the natural and architectural beauty of the Mallorcan capital.

It is worth noting that Palma is a 365-day destination, which means there are reasons to visit and enjoy it any time of the year. If you are looking for excuses to make a trip, Palma is a perfect choice. Let's look at what you can see and do in Palma de Mallorca.

Beach and sun

Dreamy beaches await visitors to the island of Mallorca. The crystal-clear waters of the Mediterranean merge with the white sands of the various beaches surrounding the city and beyond. You can go for a walk along the famous Paseo Marítimo, where there is plenty to see.

If you prefer to be in the water and are the sporty type, be sure to contact the island's many adventure tourism and water sports companies. Surfing, kayaking, windsurfing and much more await lovers of water sports. 

The Arab Baths

For those who love buildings and monuments, the Arab Baths are among Palma's most emblematic places to discover. This structure harks from the island's Muslim period and is open to visitors who wish to see a well-preserved monument from ancient times, with its columns and rooms where steam covered the bodies of the people who relaxed there.

Markets and gastronomy

Palma de Mallorca's cuisine has become famous far and wide. The exquisite gastronomy goes hand in hand with the city's markets, which supply the restaurants with local produce from the capital. We encourage you to visit our Puro Group restaurants to sample the best local and fusion gastronomy. 

The Golden Mile

The Golden Mile refers to the city's shopping boulevards between the streets of Jaime III and the Borne, up to the Moll Vell. Cafeterias, bars, shops that boast famous international and national brands, and many restaurants make up the area.

Art, history and museums

If you like history or art, you must visit the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art Es Baluard, which, since 2004, has been the most important contemporary art gallery in the Balearic Islands. Another good option is the Pilar and Joan Miró Foundation, dedicated to this outstanding Catalan artist.

If you go sightseeing in Palma, you shouldn't miss the patios, roof terraces and other historical spots. This city has a nickname: "the city of 100 patios," although in former times, there were as many as 500 of them, all of them stately and rich in architecture.

Cultural tourism in Palma de Mallorca

The influence of the two primary religious cultures has influenced Mallorcan architecture across the centuries, providing the city of Palma with many tourist attractions. Christians and Muslims left their mark in impressive buildings that evoke their beliefs and the power of the time.

The imposing Cathedral of Mallorca

The 14th and 15th centuries saw the construction of this medieval jewel. This cathedral's artistic and historical content constitutes a fantastic heritage of humanity, compiled in the eight centuries it has been standing. A visit to this place of worship is a must-see for anyone who visits the island.

Among chapels and convents

There are many sanctuaries and convents for those who want to enjoy religious tourism in Palma de Mallorca. Its stories of monks, nuns and hermits are a must. The hermitages of Betlem and Sant Honorat, both cultural heritage sites, are an example of this.

The beautiful sanctuaries of Monti-Sion, Lluc, Sant Joan Baptista and de la Mare de Déu in Sant Salvador offer breathtaking views and a lot of religious history. Strolling through their courtyards and cloisters will be a fascinating and surprising journey back in time.

Tourism: Palma de Mallorca by night

The night invites you to have fun and party when the sun sets. A good dance, a succulent meal or an exotic cocktail are just some of the many activities you can enjoy in Palma at night.

Locally brewed beers can be quaffed for as little as one euro and enjoyed while taking in the sights of the city's magnificent old town. The busy area of Sa Llotja, packed with restaurants and bars, is a favourite location for tourists all year round.
