Two of Palma's most impressive must-see attractions are among its oldest. Catedral-Basílica de Santa María de Mallorca, for instance, is a Gothic Roman Catholic place of worship situated close to Puerto de Palma. With its north European-influenced design, and embellishments that were provided by celebrated Spanish architect Antoni Gaudí, this beautiful edifice is unmissable. Walk westerly along Avinguda de Gabriel Roca, which follows the curve of the bay, to Castell de Bellver, less than 45 minutes away. From its hilltop position, this distinctive, circular castle provides amazing views across the city and coastline.
If you're looking for some arts and humanities to go with your history, you won't be disappointed. Palma is home to numerous museums and art galleries. (The city's main museum of history is located in the aforementioned Castell de Bellver.) If you're not acquainted with the work of Spanish painter and sculptor Joan Miró, do yourself a favour and visit Fundació Joan Miró, which is dedicated to displaying the great man's surrealist output.
Are you and your beloved fascinated by sea life? If so, you might like to visit Palma Aquarium, a marine park that is home to more than 8,000 creatures. See all manner of Mediterranean fauna and flora, from exotic algae and coral to seahorses, starfish, conger eels, octopi and sharks. If you fancy the idea of witnessing some of these animals in their natural habitat, hop on board a glass-bottomed boat that will provide you with just that opportunity, as well as lovely trip. The best way to experience Mediterranean sea life up close and personal is by putting on some scuba-diving gear. Palma features plenty of diving centres, any of which will have you trained up and ready to go in no time at all.
Of course, you may just wish to spend much of your time on the beach with your nearest and dearest. The opportunity to soak up the sun while lying on soft sands in front of a glistening Mediterranean Sea is, after all, a pretty enticing one. If that's how you see it, the long stretch of beach at Playa de Palma should be just the ticket.
