Palma de Mallorca is not only the biggest city in Mallorca, it is also the capital of the Balearic Islands. It is located on the southern part of Mallorca, overlooking the azure waters of the Mediterranean Sea. It is a popular holiday destination with people from the UK and Germany who usually come between July and September or for weekend getaways. It is best to book Palma de Mallorca villas in advance, especially if you are planning a trip during the weekend or peak tourist season. The rich and varied history of Palma de Mallorca is evident even today. The oldest part of the city is the historic centre, and it is a blessing to people, who want to stroll around the area on a hot humid day. The narrow, shaded streets not only allow the intrepid visitor to see some of the private courtyards, there are even private tour guides, who are more than willing to give visitors a personal tour of the area.
Villas Palma de Mallorca - visit the capital of Mallorca for sea, sun, sand and partying
Palma de Mallorca holiday rentals in the historic centre will allow you to get easy access to Catedral de Mallorca, which is located near the sea and has silverware and religious paintings on display. Do not miss a visit to the sole building from the Arab times, the Banys Arab. This building was built in the 10th century and was a bath house. Contemporary art lovers will love the permanent exhibition of well-known Spanish painters, such as Picasso, Salvador Dali and Miró, at the Museo de Arte Espanol Contemporaneo. Being in Spain also means checking out Avenue de Gaspar Bennazar where the bull ring is located. You can watch a bull fight, if you are in the mood. Alternatively, when there are no bullfights, the ring is empty and worth a visit, the arena is extremely impressive.
