Palma De Mallorca—well-populated capital city of the Balearic Islands—contains a port packed with plenty to see. This hop-on hop-off bus tour manages to cover serious ground—all while allotting you the flexibility to explore at a pace and schedule best suited for you.
Cruise through town, and hop off at The Palau de L’Alumndaina. An elaborate royal palace left standing since the Arab conquest, it still remains home to the royal family. While King and Queen are away, the 13th-century structure features vast, stone-walled spaces for you to stroll through. Admire the lavish decorations and elaborate artesonado ceilings before continuing on.
For a bout of all things Gothic, catch a ride over to Bellver Castle. Constructed in the 14th century for King James II, this looming complex is one of the few circular castles in all of Europe. Wander through its massive courtyards, expansive hallways, and surrounding landscapes—equipped with breathtaking views of the city below.
The Palma Cathedral provides you further awe-inspiring architecture. Called La Seu by locals, this Gothic Roman Catholic cathedral stands on the site of a pre-existing Arab mosque, and overlooks the stunning Palma waterfront.
