Enjoy and Explore Mallorca with Avis

Palma

Palma, the island’s capital, is a likely point of arrival on the southern side of the island and is also a great base for exploring it. The old town was once a casbah, or walled city, with a delightful maze of narrow and cobblestone alleys. A great place to while away the hours and soak up the scenery. 

La Seu

The city has some stunning architecture, notably its huge landmark cathedral ‘La Seu’, built on the site of an Arab mosque. Building started in 1300 and renovation continued up to the 20th century. Eye-catching features of the interior are the surprisingly slender columns raised to support this huge structure, a vast stained-glass window and the decorative wrought-iron canopy designed by Antonio Gaudì. The cathedral is also particularly striking at night when atmospheric lighting gives it a romantic quality. 

Castell de Bellver

Another of the city’s landmarks is the Castell de Bellver. Designed as a royal residence, the castle was later used as a prison. Climb up to the roof to see the graffiti scratched into the stone by former prisoners. The views of the city and bay from here are also spectacular and well worth the climb.

Delicacies

If you’re feeling peckish after all this sightseeing, you’ll not be disappointed by the fare served up in the many first-class restaurants in the city. The traditional cuisine is based on fish and seafood as well as rabbit and lamb. Specialities include sobrassada sausage (similar to chorizo) and ensaïmada, which is a kind of brioche made with lard, and empanadas with a meat or cheese filling.

Shopping

If you fancy a spot of retail therapy, you’ve come to the right place. The city is home to numerous designer fashion boutiques and many Spanish labels.

Beaches

Although the capital has no beach of its own, you won’t have to drive far for a dip, and there’s a wide choice of sandy beaches around the island’s coast. To the west are the resorts of Magaluf, Peguera and Palma Nova.

Resort Towns

The major resort towns on the north coast, just 37 miles from the city, are Alcúdia and Port de Pollença. The east side of the island is very different from the larger resorts. You’ll find car hire invaluable for discovering the hills, coves and fishing villages dotted along the coast.

Walking & Hiking

If you fancy a change from all that swimming and sunbathing, the island also features mountains for walking and hiking. The highest mountain in the Tramuntana range dominates the town of Sóller. Here you can visit the celebrated Can Prunera Museum of Modernism with its fine collection of works by Picasso, Paul Klee and Man Ray.

Amazing Monasteries

The northern end of the range has a harsh terrain covered with olive trees as well as valleys scented and coloured by oranges and lemons. This is also the location for the monasteries of Lluc and Valldemossa. Ill-starred lovers Chopin and George Sand stayed at the Valldemossa monastery in the nineteenth century.

Inca

The island’s inland regions are easily accessible by road and offers a quieter pace of life. The largest town, Inca, is famous for its leather industry and a well-known fashion shoe manufacturer is headquartered there.

Manacor

Manacor, in the east, is known for its artificial pearls and also as the birthplace of a very famous Mallorcan: Rafa Nadal.
It’s carnival time on the island in the days running up to Lent, known as Els Darrers Dies or ‘The Last Days’. People in fancy dress parade through the streets in processions and even hold mock ‘sardine burials’.

Weather in Mallorca

Climate is rarely a problem on an island whose capital city can average five hours of sunshine a day in January. The sea is often warm enough for swimming in November!
