My recommendations of places to visit in Mallorca..

Castell de Belver

Castell-de-Belver-mallorcaIt’s definitely worth it to have all look at the Castell de Belver. A Gothic masterpiece, it was built for King Jaume II of Mallorca back in the 14th century. You’ll find it standing guard on a hill 3 km to the north west of the capital, Palma de Mallorca.
The Castell de Belver’s opening hours are shorter in winter and longer in summer, but you can still visit any day of the week. History buffs will enjoy the museum. Kids, and those young at heart, will enjoy playing king of the castle as ascending to the top offers excellent views of the city below.



Parc Natural de Mondrago

Parc-Natural-de-Mondrago-mallorcaLocated in the south-east of the island, in Santanyi, Mondragó Natural Park suits both active and more passive visitors. The former can go birdwatching in an area that’s ideal for twitchers, considering there are more than 70 species of our feathered friends in residence. That latter, meanwhile, can idle away their time on some of Mallorca’s most idyllic beaches.

Alcúdia – San Jaime

Iglesia-San-Jaime-Alcudia-MallorcaPort d’Alcúdia is the north of Mallorca’s biggest resort. The historic centre, located between the bays of Alcúdia and Pollença, is still largely enclosed by walls of medieval origin. The pillar of the parish church of San Jaime is connected on the fortress.



Santa Maria cathedral


Santa-Maria-cathedral-mallorcaPalma de Mallorca’s Santa Maria cathedral is better known as Le Seu. The proud symbol of the city, of the island, it’s an unmissable sight.

Le Seu’s unmissable in that you can’t fail to notice it if you catch a bus from the airport to city centre. It’s one of the first things you’ll see when you get off. The second way in which the cathedral’s unmissable is that you have to take some time out to explore its interior which goes some way to matching the wow factor of its exterior.

Serra de Tramuntana
Serra-de-Tramuntana-mallorcaWhether you explore this mountain range which criss-crosses the island’s north-west coast on two or four wheels, or indeed Shanks’ Pony, the views you’re going to see are pure, unadulterated candy for the eyes. A UNESCO World Heritage site, this is traditional Mallorca so perfectly preserved it’s as  if you can almost smell formaldehyde on the breeze. Look and listen out for mountain goats who jingle jangle their way onto the main road.


Banys Arabs

banysa-arabs-mallorcaIn the heart of Palma lies the last remnants of what was once the Arab city of Medina Mayurqa. The Banys Arabs date from the 10th century baths and were probably part of a nobleman’s house. There is a domed tepidarium with 25 round shafts for sun light. The supporting columns are each unique in decoration and it is thought they were salvaged from Roman buildings. The courtyard of the hammam has cactus, palm and orange trees and you can imagine people relaxing after the bath.


The Valley of the Oranges

The-Valley-of-the-Oranges-mallorcaPort the Soller is a lovely old town is the heart of the Valley of the Oranges, a region where good growing conditions and ease of (seaborne) export meant that citrus fruit were the source of considerable prosperity. The valley is like an amphitheater with long arms reaching up to the surrounding peaks of the Serra de Tramuntana, growing orchards of olives, figs and of course oranges and lemons. 




Mallorca-ValldemossaValldemossa is a picturesque village in the mountains inland from Deia and Soller. Its beautiful Royal Charterhouse, originally a Carthusian monastery, played host in the mid 19th century to the composer Frederic Chopin and writer George Sand who were fleeing the scandal caused by their affair. La Cartoixa nowadays also functions as a cultural centre and is the setting for the annual Chopin Festival in summer. There is a museum, the old pharmacy of the monastery and modern art museum with works by Picasso and Miro.

Almudaina Palace

Then, it became the place of residence of the Mallorcan royalty. Palma was founded by the Roman consul Quintus Cecilius Metelus in 123 BC and the first center of the city developed around the Palace of La Almudaina.
