Bespoke Holidays To Palma
Our bespoke holidays to Palma will be full of sun, sea, excitement and delight. This deeply historical and infinitely interesting city is a stylish and popular retreat for groups, solo travellers, newlyweds and friends and has been so for a very long time. In fact, the city itself first rose to fame and international recognition in the 1920’s when visitors included the likes of Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor. Then, in the 1950s, tourism took off and the city and the island of Majorca has continued to rise in popularity ever since. This is in part thanks to the welcoming nature of the city, the consistently warm temperatures (averaging 17.8c and 300 days of sunshine per year), beautiful sandy beaches and an art scene alive with influences from around the globe. Palma is Majorca’s capital city and houses over half of all the island’s inhabitants. This means that Palma is always alive with music, the sounds of people, smells and sensory delights; it is easy to see why Palma is such a popular destination for British people looking for a Spanish escape.
Having been inhabited since 7000 BC this island is literally steeped in history, from the Romans who took ownership of the city in 123 BC to King Jamie of Aragon who, in 1229, gave rise to the island of Majorca and Palma as we know them today. It is safe to say that if history is of interest to you, you’ll find no shortage of it here with monuments, guided tours and museums aplenty. If you want to see the sights then no bespoke holiday to Palma would be complete without a visit to the La Seu cathedral. This stunning work of construction was first started in 1230 and took a further 400 years to complete. Another destination that you must not miss is the jaw-dropping Bellver Castle. This castle is the oldest of its kind in the whole of Europe. Whilst being a landmark and a popular attraction in its own right, the castle holds within it a very worthwhile museum.

The superb Es Baluard Museum of Contemporary Art is full of wonders and sits aside a restaurant that is internationally recognised! Joan Miro, one of the world’s great artists, lived in Majorca for almost 30 years and as such his influences are seen in the galleries that themselves are scattered across Palma.

The Playa de Palma (a beach resort easily reachable by car or bus) or the Portixol beach are both excellent options.
