With 300 days of sunshine per year, this Mediterranean jewel is a treasure that everyone wants to discover. Known to most people as a destination to visit during the summer, we wanted to talk today about the magic that you can experience here in winter. From the famous capital of Palma, to the most symbolic towns and areas of natural beauty. Prepare the camera for the incredible beauty that will take your breath away!
A walk through the capital
The city of Palma has many secrets that are worth discovering with a pleasant walk through the historic centre of the city. Beautiful places such as the Cathedral, the Town Hall Square, the Plaza Mayor and the busy Ramblas, are attractive examples of Mallorcan architecture and tradition, which also make excellent places to relax during the afternoon.
The charming traditional markets and the improvised performances of urban swing that take place in certain areas of the city centre form an alternative side to the Mallorcan capital.
A passage through the villages of the Tramuntana
Declared a World Heritage by UNESCO, the Sierra de Tramuntana is the natural wonder of Mallorca. Of course, the towns that are located around the mountain range are equally as stunning.
The magic of Esporles, Valldemossa, Deià and Fornalutx captures the visitors imagination from the first time you set your eyes on it. A traditional arròs brut (Meat & rice), or a porcella rostida (lechona) (suckling pig) are some of the most important dishes to try from these mountain villages.
Following the route through the towns of the Serra Tramuntana, you can enjoy the journey by taking the Sóller train which cannot be missed off your list of essentials. The beautiful wooden train that connects the city of Palma with the picturesque town of Sóller, in a journey through the most symbolic landscape of Mallorca.
A tour of the best viewpoints
Mallorca is full of postcard worthy landscapes. The viewpoints of Cap de Formentor, Puig de Randa, Na Foradada and the Tower of Ses Ànimes become a must see, from which you can get the best views out over this magical island in the Mediterranean
