WHAT WE RECOMMEND
The old town in Palma with its cobbled streets and squares crammed with cafes shops, medieval palaces and weathered houses, is the town’s most visited place. You can get one of the guided tours arranged by the tourist office throughout summer.
As for restaurants, Palma is the place where you can enjoy the exquisite Spanish cuisine in a marvelous atmosphere and within budget. Sa Llonja a seaside cafés perfect for a calm brunch or a crazy night out. If you’re looking for a local experience and enjoy classic Mallorquin dishs, Can Carlos is where you need to go.
Since Palma is a nightlife haven, there’s an abundance of bars everywhere you go, especially in the inner ring road of the old town, la Lonja. But if you’re more into glitzy and modern nightclubs check out the bars near the Marina, like El Divino and Garito café
