Cathedral Palma de Majorca, Spain, Balearic Islands

Mallorca is famous for its summer tourism and beach, but the truth is that the capital of the island, Palma de Mallorca is a beautiful city that is worth visiting.


The visit to Palma de Mallorca can be done with a free tour or an organized walking tour, but as always we recommend using the www.spain-walkingtours.com app because it is very complete, cheaper than a free tour, it allows you to organize yourself with freedom of schedule, and also shows places of interest, bars and typical places where you can have some tapas or eat, and thus enjoy its gastronomy.


Perhaps it is convenient to start the tour with a piece of “ensaimada mallorquina” for breakfast, which is a traditional sweet from the island. The origin of the "ensaimada" is not clear, some say it is Arab and others that it came from France in the 17th century. The app indicates the best places to buy one.


The route proposed by the app covers from the Plaza de España to the Jewish quarter. You pass through the Plaza Mayor, next to it are the Modernist buildings, this architectural movement from the late 19th century and early 20th century had a great influence on the island. The tour also covers the area of the Majorcan patios and the famous Cathedral. The tourist tour can be done quietly in a couple of hours during the morning.


Once the tour is done, the app also suggests some places to eat. It is highly recommended to take the opportunity to try the "sobrasada" of Mallorca, it is a delicious traditional sausage from the island, which is prepared with minced pork, salt, paprika and spices.


In the afternoon it may be a good idea to visit one of the museums, such as the March Foundation, which are proposed as places of interest, and to end the day, at sunset, have a drink at the Sky Bar of Hostal Cuba.
