  • Place without funny. With nothing to do. What saves a little is the old building. Do not recommend.

  • a tourist spot to be seen no more. many world and various merchants. All around the place of the "restaurants for tourists" that we could find in other places.

  • Good fun in the season. Street entertainers good but if you photo them, please pay them! Stalls a cut above average street markets. Restaurants pricey - better value only a few meters away.
  • Standard tourist place to visit. Nice but normal tourist traps exist. Grab your photos, browse the market and move on.
  • Super busy if you like that. There are plenty of other quieter squares close by if not.
  • Not the most attractive place, but a very good orientation point. Acces to most (if not all) of the local busses, long range busses and train. Furthermore, the charming old town streets take origin nearby.
  • Relaxed atmosphere. Lots of outdoor seating. Slow service.

Where to stay in Palma de Mallorca

To experience the heart of Palma, opt to stay in the the inner ring of La Avinguadas street, where lies the historical city center. The mostly traffic-free district is filled with beautiful island architecture housing boutique hotels, historical restaurants, and lovely plazas, and is only a short walk from the city beach and port. The Santa Catalina neighborhood is another popular option for accommodation as it is well known for its restaurants, daily market, and close proximity to the city's main sites. Just east of the city center is Portixol, a beachside neighborhood that still retains its charm of an old fishing village. For a small town beach atmosphere, stay along Platja de Palma, the beach stretching east of the city center.
