Private Tour: Palma de Mallorca Old Town, Palma...
Reviewed 27 November 2017

The main square was alive with tourists, locals, shoppers and much more, not to mention folk and jazz musicians! Plenty of cafes and restaurants make this a focal point for the city and all very entertaining!

Well, if you have seen the squares of any Spanish city, this one makes no difference. Quite smaller than for example of the other big Spanish cities, the place is nicely ordered and clean. It is on the list "to see " when in Palma, but there are far more interesting place to visit in the area.

We visited Palma in October this year.
In Placa Major there are several eating establishments, we picked Cafe Placa Major in the North East corner.
Welcoming and attentive staff made for a relaxing hour or so.
All the food looked delicious and the cool beer and Sangria was well received.
This was enjoyable enough to warrant two visits on the same day.

This is a big square that has a couple of restaurants. We went to a couple of different restaurants for coffee and a much needed rest. The odd thing about the square is that the restaurants close early by 7.30pm and the square doesnt seem to maximise on their potential. The square would be a tourist stop if there were some form of entertainment going on

Nice open area for tourists full of outdoor restaurants to watch people and eat good lunch or dinner.
