Uncover Mallorca's Intriguing History
Mallorca Island is a hotspot for history lovers. Once ruled by the Romans in 123 BC, the island bears many marks of its long and storied past. Visit Palma Cathedral and you’ll see the building's architectural influences include features from the 14th and 19th centuries, as well as some modern-day aspects too. After you’ve explored the cathedral, head to Mallorca’s charming vintage cafes for some of their famous hot chocolates and traditional pastries.
Outdoor Adventure Awaits on Mallorca Island
Take to the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range for a day of discovering incredible views and hiking trails. Whether you follow the dry stone path that runs through Serra de Tramuntana, or catch the vintage train from Palma, a visit to the picturesque town of Sóller is a treat as well – it's set among verdant orange groves and simply oozes charm.
For a more challenging hike, try a day trip to the uninhabited islets of Cabrera or Sa Dragonera. Cabrera has one of the quietest beaches in the Balearic Islands, Playa D-es Burri. This beach is considered part of the Cabrera Archipelago National Park, with its protected, crystal-clear waters. The islands of Cabrera are peaceful and offer the ideal conditions for swimming and snorkelling.
Experience the Island’s Nightlife
Mallorca Island is known for its legendary nightlife, and plays host to the annual Deia International Music Festival, a showcase for classical and orchestral music. If you fancy something more vibrant, why not enjoy dinner and a show at Son Amar, which is among the oldest estates on Mallorca Island. Every concert and event at Son Amar is executed with style and flair, so you’ll be sure to leave with a smile on your face.
