Palma de Mallorca

Fishing nets glisten brightly in Mediterranean blue as they lie out to dry on the quayside. Behind the nets you can catch sight of the stock exchange building, La Lonja, dating from 1388. The place where locals now sip their coffee was where most of the Mediterranean area’s trade was handled during the Middle Ages. The whole city oozes history out of every building and street corner. A bustling city, the island's capital never fails to surprise and impress all who visit.

La Seu Cathedral

This imposing gothic cathedral stands tall atop the old Roman and Renaissance city walls, looking out over Palma's harbour and old town. It was built over hundreds of years on the ruins of the mosque that once stood there. Famous Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí had a hand in the restoration project early in the 20th century, though he quit over a dispute with the contractor. This beautiful architectural wonder offers breathtaking views in every direction, and is the perfect starting point for a walking tour through the city.

Soller

The inhabitants of this idyllic village lived for centuries hidden in a valley behind a huge row of mountains. It was so hard to climb the mountain chain that people preferred to go to Palma by boat. And if they were on a boat anyway, why not go to France? Soller became tri-lingual—Mallorcan, Spanish and French. In 1911 a tunnel was dug through the mountains, so the people of Soller could finally have better access to their own island. The town's wonderful little train still runs today.
