Chances are, if you fly in to Palma, you’ll be in Majorca to relish its endless golden beaches, waterfront villages or hedonistic resorts. After all, it’s the ultimate package holiday pioneer, with 50 years of experience. But there’s more to the island than sun, sea and copious cervaza. Palma itself is well worth getting to know, boasting a 13th century Gothic cathedral and hilltop palaces, castles and fortresses. Take time to explore and you’ll find history and culture at every turn – and top-notch local gastronomy (just head where the locals go).
