Palma de Mallorca, an historic city and a must see


Palma, also known as Palma de Mallorca, was founded by the Romans in the year 120 B.C. The city is located in the center of the Palma Bay, about 13 meters above the sea level. The center of the city is crossed by two torrents, Sa Riera and Torrent Gros.


The historical and cultural legacy of the city is reflected in the numerous palaces, residences, and monuments of its historic center. Above the Palma bay stands the cathedral, known as La Seu, next to the Palace of the Almudaina, two of the main attractions of Palma.


Not to mention the old part of the city with a medieval layout of narrow streets where the Arab Baths, the Episcopal Palace, the Oratorio de Sant Pau and the Can Solleric Palace in the Passeig del Born stand out, that along with La Rambla is one of the liveliest streets of the city. Paseo Marítimo, is another night-time entertainment place.


A little further away, on top of a hill, Bellver Castle rises, and it is one of the few castles in the world with a circular floor.
