Spend the day:
Culture junkies will be happy to know that almost all the important sights spiral out from the center of town and can be covered on foot. Some our our faves were the magnificent Catedral de Palma ( aka La Seu), the charming Convent de Santa Clara, the Can Marques –the tour of this grand old mansion (renovated by a wealthy coffee baron) offers a fascinating look what life was like in the early 1900’s.
Even though I’m not a fan of Joaquin Torrents Llado paintings, it is well worth visiting the museum, Casa Museu J Torrents Llado to see his stunningly appointed two story studio.
There is a growing number of museums well-worth a visit or if you feel like shopping, the trendiest boutiques can be found on C/Brossa street.
Tip: if you’re renting a bike (which is a fun way to navigate the area) make sure you ask for one with a BIG basket. When you’re ready for a break, head down to the action-filled waterfront and nab a seat at one of the sidewalk cafes and while away the hours watching (and dreaming about) the mega-yachts that bob about the harbor.
