One Day Visit on November 1st, All Saint's Day

by MartyAP

We will be visiting Palma off a cruise ship for one day.
Because of the holiday I know many things are closed. One
choice would be to take the train and/or L211 bus and visit
Soller and Port Soller. A second choice is to take the L210
local bus and visit some of the towns like Deia and Valldemossa.
Any advice would truly be appreciated.

Thanks,
Karen

Hi.

Yes it's true many things are closed.

If you want to go to Soller check http://www.trendesoller.com/

I think is better for you visit Soller for a short 1 day trip. I guess you will have a restricted time-scheduling due to boarding.

How to get "Estació de Sóller" : You can take the Nº1 bus near the docks (5 minutes walking). Tell to the bus driver you want to stop at "Plaza España". When you arrive to "Plaza España" just cross the street and you will find the Soller train station.

Thank you for that information DrSlump. I've been searching for that precise information. I, too, am taking the train or bus to Soller and needed to know how to get to the station from the cruise ship. Many thanks!! :)

You're wellcome. You can request all the information you need.

You can take a taxi too (is faster than the bus, when a cruise stop there are hundreds of people trying to get de bus). An approximate fare can be arround 10 euros, starting on the docks.

For a 1 day trip you can consider visit the old city instead of Soller (Cathedral, Arabic baths, etc ···)

Pleased to help you.

P.D.: The buses in Palma are blue buses. Often I see a lot of people trying to stop de yelow ones at the docks stop (my office is in front of the docks). Stop de yellow buses is dangerous and they will not stop for regular city-passengers.

Thank you again! We are going to take a taxi to the train station....go to Soller and Port Soller, then return about 2pm of so. That will give us time to also look around the Port area....we need to be back on the ship by 5:30pm....

We're really looking forward to our visit!!

You have the time-scheduling well controled!.

I hope you enjoy a lot visiting Soller (have a look to the Church). You can take a "paella" on "Port de Soller" near the sea too.

P.D.: Don't forget to taste their "orange ice cream". They are very proud of it.

Salute

Thank you for the orange ice cream tip, Dr.Slump.....sounds delicious. I always like tasting local food. I know that there are many orange and lemon groves....I hope to buy some food made with those fruits. I never refuse ice cream....LOL.. :)

Travel Tips for Palma de Mallorca

Visit El Castillo de Bellver,...

by hopesuzanne

Visit El Castillo de Bellver, a beautiful old castle, with nice views of the island. The thing I miss the most about Palma is definitely waking up every morning and sitting on my terrace overlooking the Mediterranean, listening to the waves.

Interesting dual lights for Traffic Lights

by dlytle

As I was walking around the Passeig Des Born pedestrian street in Palma, Mallorca, I noticed something interesting about the traffic lights. On each pole, there were two lights. The upper light had the normal red, yellow and green sections one expects of a traffic light.

The lower light, however, only glowed either red or green. It had no yellow lens.

My wife suggested that the reason for this was that so many of the automobiles were small that the roofline of the car cuts off their view of the upper light and therefore a lower light makes the streets safer.

Neither of us know if this is the real explanation but it sounded reasonable to me. But whatever the reason they use them, I thought I would point them out so you will also be on the lookout for these unusual lights.

Tapas, montaditos y platos combinados

by flyfreak about Lizarran

What a place! I loved it. It is the typical place where you get a plate and choose from the montaditos (little sandwiches with all kinds of food variation) and tapas. Each montadito has a toothpick on it - this is for counting the amount of montaditos you have been consuming afterwards. The price of each montadito is EUR 1,- (June 2008). You can also order platos combinados.

Great service and food! A typical experience!!! The montaditos .. yummie.

Bellver Castle

by Manuel_Cano

Bellver Castle is to be found some three kilometres from the centre of Palma . It stands 112.60 m above sea level and as such dominates the sky line above the city.

Its construction started in 1300 by the orders of James II, King of Mallorca. It took nine years to build the basic structure, the ornamentation was finished more slowly. The work force consisted of Seventy permanent artisans and a large number of the king's slaves as well as local women.

The castle was built as a royal residence. In the late 14th century, John I and Violet of Aragon stayed there with their court for three months. The castle has also entertained other European royalty, such as Charles I of England, the Prince of Saboya, John of Austria, the Duke of Monpensier and the present British Monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, as well as members of the Spanish Royal family including the present monarchs King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia.

Courtyards

by MikeAtSea

The history of Palma's courtyards dates back to the thirteenth century, with the advent of the Gothic period, and culminated between the sixteenth and eighteenth centuries. The city's most prominent houses were rebuilt during this time and, in some cases, reformed according to Renaissance and Baroque tastes.
Nowadays, these palatial homes have been turned into headquarters for institutions and museums and, in many cases, are still private homes.
