Palma de Mallorca: Great weather, great wine, great food
The most famous monument of Palma is the gothic cathedral La Seu which incorporates many architectural styles and additions, including works of Antoni Gaudí. Around the cathedral is the Old City with small alleys and stairways. It is considered one of the best preserved historical town centres in Europe. The architecture of the quaint houses shows the influence of the Moors, who lived here for hundreds of years until the island was conquered in 1229. Another Highlight for the serious sightseeing tour is the medieval castle Castell de Bellver. Its circular shape makes it entirely unique in Europe. Central to the locals and tourists alike is the Passeig de Born, where people meet in the shadows of old plane trees and enjoy the mild climate. You should try the specialties of Mallorca, especially fresh fish is a prominent feature. Another treat are the fine wines of Mallorca which have a very good reputation with wine aficionados all over the world. With so much to see and enjoy it is a pity to waste your holidays entirely on the beach.
