INTRODUCING

Palma De Mallorca

The capital of the Balearic Islands, Palma de Mallorca is also home to Oyster Palma. It is the largest city on the island with nearly half a million inhabitants, more than half of the total population.

Dating back to the 13th Century, when the Christians took control from the Moors, the city’s honey-coloured stone rises over the Bay of Palma. It is rich with history, with Roman and Talayotic sites in and around the city, winding medieval streets lined with bars and restaurants, art galleries and craft shops and dominated by the impressive Gothic Catedral-Basílica de Santa María de Mallorca

The Oyster Palma service team is based here, with many owners calling on the team’s knowledge and experience to get their yacht shipshape and prepared for the voyage – as they have done for the last three Rallies.

Next destination

Highlights

  • Walk the streets of the old town and stop for tapas and local cuisine
  • Visit Catedral-Basílica de Santa María de Mallorca, overlooking the Bay of Palma. (Don’t miss the impressive views from the bay when you sail in or out of port).
  • Cycle up the wooded hills over the city to visit Bellver Castle, one of a handful of distinctive circular castles in Europe.
