Palma de Mallorca

The pulse of Palma hits the historic center, the “Old Town”, which starts from the port and extends to the north. It is an attractive blend of lavender and paved narrow gothic churches and baroque palaces that create the impression that in some corner a melancholy tower will comb her hair on the balcony waiting for her knight to appear.

The eastern side of the island is an impressive area, consisting of hundreds of small bays extending from Cap de Ferruxt, near Cala Ratjada in the north, to Punta Negra, the westernmost tip of the island.
