Mallorca has a Mediterranean character that all visitors love and which its inhabitants are proud of. It is Spain's main tourist destination, and the island is renowned for its diverse scenery, sports installations, sea ports and atmosphere.
The largest of the Balearic Islands offers all options to travellers, who can choose between sun and sand family tourism in our hotels in Mallorca, relaxing routes across the Tramuntana mountain, or visit some of the coves of transparent water peppered along the coast.
The city of Palma combines different architectural styles, broad promenades and examples of some hefty fortunes. Our route belongs along the promenade, and we take in the Seu, the 13th- and 14th-Century Gothic Byzantine cathedral which also bears the hallmark of the great Gaudí. For those who like to lose themselves in the corners, a good option is to wander through the streets and discover the characteristic Mallorcan patios and then take a well-deserved rest in one of our hotels in Mallorca: the H10 Punta Negra or the H10 Blue Mar.
It is the real treasure of Mallorca, adored by hikers and visitors who can go there while they stay at our hotels in Mallorca. There are different routes and they are all a gift for the senses.
During your stay at one of our hotels in Mallorca you can visit Sóller, a village nestling in a valley protected by mountains, with a special microclimate, and decorated with its famous orange trees.
The beaches and coves of Mallorca are a sight to behold, and our hotels in Mallorca have a short-cut to two small coves bathed by transparent waters. There are also other coves that can only be reached on foot, such as Cala de Mallorca and Cala Magraner, from a path out of Felanitx. The most outstanding coves and beaches are:
Culture vultures and art lovers will have no shortage of museums to visit. Most of the museums are in the centre of Palma de Mallorca. One of the most famous is the Museum of Contemporary Art Es Baluard, next to the park of Sa Faixina. Special mention must be made of the Pilar and Joan Miró Foundation, in Cala Mayor, which narrates the life and work of the Catalan artist.
You can spend a day out shopping in Palma de Mallorca while also admiring its famous monuments. Most of the fashion stores are in the city centre. The main streets are Avenida Jaime III and the Paseo del Borne, la Vía Sindicato and Calle San Miguel. Another option is the Shopping Mall of Porto Pi, there are also many shops and cinemas, a hypermarket and restaurants.
Visit the rest of the islands
