Palma de Mallorca, Majorca Island
Don't just stay in one place, travel around the island, you'll be surprised.
Fondest memory: Sunshine, sunshine, sunshine!! Thunderstorms!! People. Food. Wine. Festivals. Smell of fresh bread early morning. Swimming in the warm sea. Smiling children. Early morning walks before the heat. Markets. The smells. The sounds. The sights. The tastes. The quiet. The noise. Gracias Majorca.
I guess it is not that special really, but I lived the Arabian Baths in Palma. Already the street where you walk to get to the Baths is quiet and not crowded at all.
Inside you have a lovely garden with chairs and benches, and two buildings where the Arabian baths used to be. Just a few explanations, not much to see really. But perfect for sitting in the garden, and use your imagination!!
Favorite thing: Palma is the capital of Mallorca and the island's only city, that is if you can call it as such at all. Must see's are the cathedral (pictured), the parks and the harbour. It's also the place to go if you want to go shopping.
Palma is the capital of Mallorca, the largest of the Balearic Islands.
This ancient town, founded by the Romans has a lot surprises to offer: on the road which leads to the market it is possible to visit important places such as the XVII century town hall and the old market place, Placa
Major,Bellver Castle, a strong symbol of the island, dominates everything. It is one of the finest examples of military architecture of the XIV and XV centuries, although its circular golden stone structure gives it a strangely modern appearance.
The Old Quarter of Palma has great cultural richness. It is worth visiting the XIIIth. century Cathedral, the Xth. century Arab Baths
and the churches, Town Hall and the walls that used to entirely surround the city.
There are modern buildings of importance such as the Gran Hotel. Here you can also find nice cafes and restaurants.
To finish with, you can visit the Poble Espanyol, an open-air museum displaying scaled-down exact copies of the most famous architectural treasures in Spain.
