Cheap Flights to Palma de Majorca

Palma de Majorca overview

About ten million people seek cheap flights to Palma each year and the vast majority of them leave the city as quickly as possible for the resorts around Mallorca. Were they to stay in the capital city of the Balearic Islands, the city that curves around the Bay of Palma, they would discover a cosmopolitan and beautiful city just bursting with palaces, cathedrals, museums, galleries and parks, not to mention restaurants, bars and shops.

Most of Palma's sights are to be seen in its old town. The La Seu Cathedral is spectacular, French-Gothic in style with an altarpiece and candelabras by Gaudi. It was built, like so many other churches in Spain, on the remains of a mosque. Construction started about 500 years ago and is still not finished.

The Almudaina Palace is beside the cathedral. This was once the heart of the Moorish citadel but converted into a royal palace by the Christians.

Es Baluard is another stunning building. It was constructed by adding concrete walls to the remains of Palma's ramparts. The March Foundation is also worth a look. It has 70 permanent works of art as well as temporary exhibitions.
