Located on the southern coastline of the island of Majorca is its capital city Palma. One of the first sights that greet you when you arrive on holiday in Palma is the gothic Palma Cathedral on the hillside, alongside which you'll discover the old Arab quarter with its maze of narrow streets full of palaces, museums and quaint courtyards. Along the seafront is the marina with its palm tree lined promenade - the perfect place to see the large cruise liners that dock each day. Avingida Jaume III, Passeig de Born and the streets around the Placa Major are the places to enjoy some serious retail therapy. Palma is also home to Majorca's best restaurants, shops and nightlife. Palma Aquarium, Bellver Castle and the Joan Miro Foundation are not to be missed too. Or take a scenic train ride to the town of Soller or head inland to the Caves of Drach. With so much to offer in one place, it's easy to see why a holiday in Palma is a favourite with families, couples and groups of friends.
