The lively capital of the largest Balearic island - Mallorca - was not for nothing voted the most liveable place in the world in 2015 by Times Magazine. Here, residents benefit not only from the many sunny days. Palma’s wonderful old town offers numerous alleys and courtyards full of character. One of the most impressive squares here is probably Mallorca’s landmark, La Seu Cathedral with its impressive Parc de la Mar! Every day, many people enjoy the special atmosphere in and around the building, which dates back to 1230. The gastronomic offer in Palma has improved immensely in recent years and you can find everything from simple local restaurants to Michelin star restaurants. Beautiful boutique hotels have also sprung up like mushrooms, further enhancing the value of Palma.
Palma de Mallorca is the cultural capital of Mallorca and one of the most interesting cities in Europe. Especially the bay of Palma with its numerous luxurious yachts, restaurants and clubs, the harbour for the huge cruise ships, the impressive cathedral La Seu and the historic old town of Palma with its numerous churches attract millions of tourists every year. Flats and penthouses with sea views are extremely popular in Palma’s old town, the Calatrava quarter or Casco Antiguo, on the harbour street Paseo Maritimo or in the former fishing quarter Portixol.
Luxury villas can be found in the exclusive district above Palma, in Son Vida, but also in Bonanova, Portals, Genova or in Bendinat, very close to the Royal Palace of Marivent. The island’s capital, Palma, offers a wide range of cultural activities, an excellent infrastructure and excellent international public schools, all located in and around Palma. The proximity to the airport “Aeropuerto de Son San Juan” makes the purchase of a property in or around Palma particularly attractive for buyers from all over Europe.
Palma’s old town is just over 5 minutes from the airport and mainly covers the areas of Calatrava (Cathedral & surroundings), Paseo Borne, La Rambla, Plaza Major, Calle Sindicat, Jaime II and Jaime III. Take a stroll through the narrow streets of Palma’s old town and peek into one of the many Mediterranean courtyards. Have a coffee or a glass of wine in one of the small squares, and at the latest when you see the proud marina and the impressive cathedral with the adjacent Almudaina Palace and its Arabic architecture, you will realise all over again why exactly this city is called the Pearl of the Mediterranean. Because you are enchanted by its charm and will never forget it.
