Mallorca is undoubtedly a true paradise. Its natural beauty has been portrayed throughout history in art, literature and music. The captivating Serra de Tramuntana and the wild coasts have inspired artists such as Pablo Picasso, Robert Graves and Frédéric Chopin, who were captivated by this place and left their mark on it for posterity. Today, the landscapes that are contemplated in this corner of the Mediterranean are recognized worldwide and attract all kinds of visitors. The reputed fame of the hotels in Mallorca and the diversity of leisure activities are two key factors for your holidays to be unbeatable.
The mild climate with pleasant winters and warm summers allows to enjoy the largest island of the Balearic archipelago at any time of the year. During the colder seasons an ideal leisure option is to enjoy the beautiful hiking trails, scattered throughout the mountains, which run along peaks and valleys discovering lush landscapes with natural springs and streams. Even with more than 300 sunny days a year, the summers are a spectacle of refreshing dips and fiery sunsets. All along the northeast coast, from San Telmo, through Sóller and the incomparable Cabo de Formentor to Puerto Pollensa, the small coves are a unique contrast between steep cliffs and crystal clear waters.
Bathing in such idyllic spots as Bañalbufar, Cala Deià, Cala Tuent, or Torrent de Pareis is a luxury you will never forget. The rest of the coast is sheltered by the mountains from the intense Mediterranean winds, its long white sandy shores fill the horizon with turquoise blue tones. Among the most coveted beaches such as Can Picafort, Calas de Mallorca, Es Trenc or Sa Ràpita are hidden small dreamy harbours that illustrate the true island spirit.
Recognised by "The Times" as 'the best place to live in the world', Palma is undoubtedly the heart of Mallorca. Its lively streets invite you to stroll around and seem to lead you to popular squares and charming shopping areas. While the narrow streets of the old town hide small businesses such as bookshops, bakeries and craft shops, the main avenues in the centre are full of colour and showcase the biggest fashion brands. Culturally, Palma has a whole selection of theatres and galleries whose performances and exhibitions will fill your evenings with music and art.
The Cathedral of Mallorca, La Seu, originally from the 13th century, is one of the most emblematic monuments of Mallorcan Gothic architecture and boasts one of the largest rose windows in the world known as the Gothic eye. The port of Palma extends to the foot of the Cathedral and is adorned with a multitude of sailing boats and yachts along a beautiful promenade that runs along the bay where we can find the most exclusive hotels overlooking the sea. In short, an ideal destination for your holidays in Mallorca.
If you come to Mallorca do not miss the local flavours, the popular gastronomy has been recovered over the years and today it is a treasure for the palate. In many shops and restaurants you can taste typical dishes such as Coca de Trampó, Sopas Mallorquinas, Frit de Matances or the popular Ensaimada. Even some of the most luxurious and modern restaurants are also committed to traditional ingredients and flavours. To round off your gastronomic experience, don't forget to complete your pairing by choosing a local wine or beer.
