Things to do
Coves del Drac
Cuevas del Drach is an impressive and beautiful network of caves located in an old shing village called Porto Cristo, around 65 kilometres from Palma. The caves are two kilometres long and thousands upon thousands of amazing stalagmites and stalactites are spread across the three chambers. Guided tours take around one hour.

La Seu (Cathedral)
This imposing Gothic cathedral stands tall atop the old Roman and Renaissance city walls, looking out over Palma’s harbour and old town. It was built over hundreds of years on the ruins of the mosque that once stood there. Famous Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí had a hand in the restoration project early in the 20th century, though he quit over a dispute with the contractor. This beautiful architectural wonder others breathtaking views in every direction, and is the perfect starting point for a walking tour through the city.

Casco Antiguo – Old Town
The narrow lanes and alleyways of the Old Town echo with centuries of sea-faring, intercontinental trade and intercultural encounters. Take a stroll around one of the largest areas of ancient buildings in Europe, cast your eyes over the spruced-up palaces and visit the luxury hotels, shops and bars.
Cap de Formentor
Dizzying twisting roads and dramatic cliffs, north-west Mallorca is wild and beautiful. People crowd the vantage points along the road to photograph this beautiful cape that locals call the “meeting point of the winds.”
Alcudia Old Town
Its 14km-long beach makes Alcudia one of the island’s most popular tourist destinations, especially among families. But the city also has a lovely Old Town with picturesque narrow winding streets and beautiful old buildings, giving a real feeling of life in the old days.
The Wine Express Train
This three-hour tour on a road train stops at some of Mallorca’s famous vineyards (including the island’s oldest winery), where visitors get the chance to try some delicious local vintages. While visiting the wineries the able tour guide lets participants in on the secrets of Mallorca’s wine culture.

More Info: Departure from Bodegas José L. Ferrer
The inhabitants of this idyllic village lived for centuries hidden in a valley behind a huge row
of mountains. It was so hard to climb the mountain chain that people preferred to go to Palma by boat. And if they were on a boat anyway, why not go to France? Soller became tri-lingual—Mallorcan, Spanish and French. In 1911 a tunnel was dug through the mountains, so the people of Soller could nally have better access to their own island. The town’s wonderful little train still runs today.
Binissalem Wine Village
Tasting some of Mallorca’s award-winning wines at José Luis Ferrer and the other many bodegas is a feast for the senses. During the ine Festival in September, Binissalem is just one long table laden with wine and food.
Address: Carrer Celler del Rei 9, Binissalem

Bellver Castle is a well-preserved 14th century royal fortress with an amazing view
over Palma Bay. For many centuries the castle was used as a prison and now it is one of the
main tourist attractions on the island. The castle also houses the Palma History Museum where you can learn more about the island’s rich heritage.

As is to be expected, tapas, montaditos and pintxos abound in Mallorca. But for a truly authentic Mallorcan gastronomic experience visitors will want to avoid those easy options and go instead for some of the many local specialties. On the coast, bistros serve the freshest seafood with beautiful ocean views, while inland heartier meals are on the menu -spit-roast pig with fresh seasonal vegetables grown just a few miles down the road- and the sea-breeze is swapped for mountainous landscapes. All of this, of course, is accompanied by fine local vintages and the warm companionship of local chefs and fellow diners.

Bars & Nightlife
