Palma, Mallorca’s capital city, can look back on 2,000 years of history. It was founded by the Romans under the rule of Quintus Caecilius Metelius 123 years B.C and was known as ‘Palmana Palmensis’. However, there was already a settlement in Mallorca 5,000 years B.C. as has been discovered from excavations in and around Llucmajor. Today, almost 500,000 people live in the administrative district of Palma, roughly half of the total population of the Balearic Islands.
The long history of the town is also reflected in the city's varied architecture: 31 - predominantly Gothic churches and the powerful cathedral (La Seu), bear witness to the importance of Christianity for the city and the island. Next to the cathedral is the royal palace Almudaina, which is used today more as a museum and as accommodation for state guests. Not far away, is the ancient maritime trade market, La Lonja, which boasts impressive Gothic architecture.
Art Nouveau was also an inspiration for many impressive buildings situated in prominent places in the city.
Palma is also a place for the arts year round: for music and theatre lovers there are numerous performances, especially in the Teatro Principal and the Auditorium. Many museums testify to the ancient history of the city, but also to contemporary art, which is exhibited in the museum Es Baluard and in many international galleries throughout the city.
On the main shopping streets of Palma, the Paseo Born and the Avenida Jaume III, the Plaza Major and the many side streets which are partially pedestrianised, you will find everything your heart desires from traditional shops to the chic window displays of international brands, restaurants, cafés and bars - for every taste and every pocket.
