Mallorca’s capital is as good-looking as cities come, with its golden stone, gothic architecture and sun-kissed bays. There’s something for every kind of traveller on one of our Palma de Mallorca cruises. The cathedral – the Catedral de Mallorca - stands proudly in the centre of the old town. Enormous and formidable, a religious building in this spot it’s loomed over the city since the beginning of the 17th century. It was designed by Antoní Gaudí and Miquel Barceló, it blends gothic and Renaissance architecture to stunning effect. Palma Mallorca (also simply known as Palma) is just as renowned for its lively, buzzy vibe as it is for its architecture. It’s best soaked up Plaza Mayor, a square filled with cafes and shops as well as craft and produce markets. Escape the midday heat with a visit to the Palma Aquarium, where you’ll find a shark viewing tank, majestic humpback whales, a rooftop garden and more. Don’t miss the Castell de Bellver, which dates back to the 14th-century. This round tower is unique in Spain thanks to its shape and position on a verdant hillside. The castle spoils you when it comes to views – from one side, you’ll be treated to vistas of the city of Palma and the woods, and the other, the sea.
