Palma de Mallorca
The Balearics are comprised of 16 islands; the three principal ones are Mallorca, Ibiza and Menorca. Lying just 60 miles off the Spanish mainland, the islands’ lush and rugged landscape combined with an extremely mild, sunny climate prove irresistible. The Balearics boast cosmopolitan resorts with lively nightlife and plenty of sports activities. Palma de Majorca is the capital of the archipelago. A cosmopolitan city with sophisticated shops and restaurants, it also offers buildings of spectacular Moorish and gothic architecture. Museo de Mallorca housed in the Palacio Ayamans boasts an interesting collection of Moorish, medieval and 18th- to 19th-century art. Those who wish to explore the northern end of the island will enjoy the dramatic land and seascape of Cabo Formentor at the end of a long, narrow peninsula. A winding road with magnificent views leads to the luxury Hotel Formentor, beautifully situated above the bay. The lighthouse of Cabo Formentor is the most northerly point on Majorca.
Pollenca is a serene, simple retreat from the hubub of resort travel elsewhere on the island of Mallorca. Park in the lower town and explore by foot from there. Visit the Puig de Pollenca up the hill, where a 14th/15th century monastery has panoramic views of Mallorca's coast below. Now a hostel, the monastery has a few amenities, like fireplaces and restaurant/bar service. Other hiking opportunities are along the Cami Vell del Far.
This small and beautiful community that sits on the forested hills and lush countryside on the Balearic Islands is lined with blonde stones and draped with green plants and colorful flowers. The charming cobbled streets are filled with galleries, cafes, and bakeries. It is known to be the most beautiful village of Mallorca that transpired inspiration for many artists. One couple being Polish composer Chopin and French novelist Amantine-Lucile-Aurore Dupin also known as George Sand, lived here themselves. With small numbers of tours and visitors to Valldemossa, the town’s tranquil atmosphere and centuries old of beauty remains unchanged.
