It’s a Gothic Roman Catholic cathedral which is beautiful inside and out, especially at night when it’s is lit up. The cathedral is set on the bay and has immaculately kept gardens and a small museum to enjoy.
Opposite the cathedral you’ll find the Almudaina Palace (Palau de l’Almudaina) which was originally built as an Arabian Fort but claimed as official royal residence in the 14th century and is still used by the Spanish Royal family today.
Es Baluard Museum of Contemporary Art is one of Spain’s most important museums. It houses over 500 works of modern art over three floors and you’ll be delighted with sculptures, paintings, ceramics and of course, contemporary, pieces of art.

Palma has some great bars and La Lonja is the place to head for nightclubs, restaurants and jazz clubs. If you’re looking for a more local experience, head to Plaça Major where you’ll find tapas restaurants and independent bars.
