As you leave the hotel, a staircase on the left takes you directly to the Plaza Mayor de Palma, the nerve center of the commercial life of the city, which regularly hosts markets and entertainment activities.
Taking the portal on the right, you will arrive at Plaza Marqués del Palmer, where some of the most striking modernist buildings in Palma are located. From there, going straight on, you can continue along calle Jaume II or calle Colom. Two shopping streets that house traditional shops and shops of leading fashion and jewelery brands.
Colom Street takes you directly to Plaza de Cort, where the city’s town hall stands out, a unique building with a Baroque façade with Mannerist details. From there, on the right you will find Palau Reial street, where you will see, first of all, the headquarters of the Consell de Mallorca and, a few meters away, the headquarters of the Parlament de les Illes Balears. Next to the latter stands the Palau March, a large palace with a strong Baroque influence, owned by the Bartolomé March Foundation. Just 20 meters away, you will find the Almudaina Palace, a historic royal seat from the 14th century, the official residence of His Majesties The Kings of Spain during their stays in Mallorca.
Next to the Almudaina, you can see the majestic cathedral of Mallorca. Built between the 13th and 14th centuries in Gothic style, its large rose window stands out, one of the largest in the world. It also houses artistic interventions by Antoni Gaudí and Miquel Barceló. It is highly advisable to visit the terraces, which allows, on your route up the stairs, to see the machinery of the organ and the bell tower and, at the end of the journey, pass through the outside of the rose window and contemplate impressive views over the Parc de the Sea, the skyline and the bay of Palma.
