Palma de Mallorca
A military fort was established in 123 BC by the Roman consul Quintus Ceciulius Metellus Balearicus which led to the foundations of the city of Palma de Mallorca. The original Roman name of the city was Palma.
We find traces of all conquerors of the island in the city. On the grounds of the Rome city stands the Moorish castle, Arab baths, Christian cathedral and many churches. All of this surrounded by huge city walls, which are not only a beautiful part of the panorama of the city, but also the rest place on the seaside with castle battlements and giant towers of the cathedral over your head.
The old town is a tangle of picturesque narrow streets, right in the centre there is a long sea promenade and the beach lined with palms. The city's harbour resembles an endless forest of masts of the anchoring boats. There are beautiful views of the sea and the Tramuntana mountains on the opposite side, which can be covered by snow in winter.
The city is dominated by a Gothic cathedral with an Almudaina castle and a unique circular castle of Bellver on the other side of the bay.
Streets of the old town, as well as several kilometres long sea promenade comes alive with nightlife. You will find many restaurants, discos, bars and the excellent theaters here.
La Catedral del Mar, this is how they call this unique building on the seashore, where on its facade you can admire the largest gothic rosette window in the world. With a proper lighting, gigantic vitrage windows offer visitors an etherial theatre of colours multiplied by the intensity of the Mediterranean sun.
Cathedral of Palma de Mallorca is one of the largest Gothic cathedrals in the world, so don´t forget a camera with wide-angle lens, which would capture its gigantic dimensions and beautiful details of the facade and interior.
And if you're a fan of modern art, you can also find traces of the greats of Art Nouveau architecture here, especially the builder of Barcelona's Sagrada Familia, Antoni Gaudí. Gaudí participated in the partial reconstruction of the interior and is the author of a huge canopy over the main altar.
Next to the cathedral between the leaves of palm trees rises an elegant, fabulously beautiful silhouette of the Royal Palace Almudaina. If it were not for the cathedral, you would feel like in a fairy tale from the Thousand and One Nights.
The palace is open for visitors, however, it is still the official royal residence used for formal receptions.
There are only three Gothic castles with a circular layout across the whole Europe. In addition Bellver means a beautiful view.
The castle is worth the visit. The beautiful Gothic architecture with incredible views of the Palma city and the island of Mallorca. An unforgettable experience.
The walls of the city of Palma are not only a stone defense. It is a place for walking, rest, gathering with friends, the place where various performances and events are held, a place where you can relax with children, or with your dog, a place for lovers, but also the ideal place for reading or meditation. And even in winter. The walls will make you feel completely small and you certainly might not get enough of their beauty.
Serra de Tramuntana
The most significant mountains on the island of Mallorca. It contains a number of mountain valleys and karst caves. From the west, the rocky slopes of the mountains decline directly into the azure sea, thus forming gorgeous bays. The Mountains offer excellent conditions for hiking and climbing. Cyclists won´t get bored either.
Tramuntana mountain area is listed in the UNESCO World Heritage site.
A picturesque village in a mountainous Valley of orange trees connected with Palma de Mallorca by a historical train. In the village of Soller you can switch to a historical tramway that will take you to a Soller harbour. A perfect trip for families with kids in the creaking wooden wagons.
Sóller is not just a beautiful village with many historic buildings, museums and a botanical garden, but its surroundings offer ideal conditions for hiking and climbing.
Another beautiful mountain village, which originated in the Middle Ages around Kartuza, a monastery from the 14th century. Cosy narrow streets, old monasteries, palaces and breathtaking views, excellent restaurants with local gastronomy, that is Valldemossa. Valdemossa witnessed the love of the composer Chopin and French writer George Sand.
Fincas is actually a rural homestead, farm. On the island of Mallorca you will find various settlements, not only agricultural , but also ancient rural residences with beautiful gardens from Moorish times.
Many of these estates became museums and are definitely worth the visit. The most beautiful include gardens and a museum Alfábia, Raixa, Sa Bassa Blanca and many others. We can arrange your stay in selected settlements on the island.
