The narrow shady streets of Palma’s medieval Old Town around the cathedral are home to handsome palaces and grand houses where Mallorca’s nobility once resided, and members of 21st century high society continue to live. This privileged residential barrio has an air of tranquillity, relatively little traffic, and is steeped in history. A stroll around the cathedral district reveals enchanting plant-filled courtyards, historical buildings, evidence of Mallorca’s Moorish occupation, and remains of the city’s old walls. Real estate for sale or rent in La Seu includes authentic Mallorcan palacios, many superbly restored; grand houses converted into high-specification luxurious apartments, and exclusive penthouses. If you seek a privileged address, emblematic architecture, proximity to the Parc de Mar, or a front-line home, look at properties in Palma’s cathedral district.
