Palma, the capital of Mallora, is the seat of the autonomous government of the Balearics. It is the strategic centre of the Balearics, because apart from the government it also has the largest port, the largest airport and a well-developed infrastructure.
The city charms its tourists again and again with its historic quarter, the beautifully restored façades of its townhouses with elegant apartments and penthoueses in history-charged buildings. Your house, villa, apartment in Palma will be in one of the most beautiful Mediterranean cities. We have the right property for you, for sale or to rent in Palma de Mallorca.
In the last ten years millions of euros have been spent to renovate the city and the façades of buildings. The beautiful and characteristic gothic Cathedral “La Seu” dominates the silhouette of the city.
The old town of Palma offers a mix of styles including Spanish Catalan and Arab features. It is known for its many narrow alleyways, some of which are only connected via steps. The Plaça Major is the centre of the old town.
In the southwest, on the edge of the old town above the port rises the “Castell de Bellver”, a medieval castle.
Not far from the port and the cathedral, there is another master piece of civil gothic architecture in Palma: the “Llotja dels Mercaders”, the former Maritime Stock Exchange. All these factors contribute to the fact that Palma is a cosmopolitan city where life pulsates all year round. Yet, as the city is manageable; everything can easily be reached on foot.
Palma, with its three marinas, is also a destination for sailing and motor boat fans; the best-known sports marina is Real Club Nautico where many important regattas, such as for example the Copa del Rey, are held. The Spanish Royal Family is a permanent guest here. The Club del Mar is another traditional club, one of the most expensive and exclusive marinas in Europe.
