Palma is one of the Mediterranean’s most elegant cities, on a par with Barcelona in terms of architectural richness, vibrancy, cosmopolitan atmosphere and sophistication – yet smaller and more intimate in feel. As well as a fascinating multicultural history, Palma has everything required for a high-quality lifestyle: year-round culture, exclusive shopping, fine dining, opportunities for outdoor leisure pursuits, and more. Palma has theatres, jazz clubs, numerous restaurants and cafés, museums, art galleries, boutique hotels, stores/boutiques offering some of the world’s best-known luxury brands, and a renowned yacht club.
Millions of euros have been invested in the restoration of Palma and its emblematic façades; ongoing projects include a new convention centre and hotel overlooking the Bay of Palma, and refurbishment of part of the old city walls.
Whether you’re looking for a permanent home or a second residence in the easily walkable heart of Palma, you’ll also enjoy the convenience of being just a 10-minute drive from Mallorca’s spacious airport. And when you want to visit other parts of the island, there are excellent motorway links from Palma.
