Arab Baths

Being the only remnants of the now-extinct town of Medina Mayurqa, these historic baths dating from the 10th to the 12th Centuries have stood up well against the test of time. Originally thought to be a part of some nobleman's house, the baths now serve as a major tourist attraction for visitors to the island. In its heyday it served as the social hub of the city for gatherings, ceremonies, or even just to relax. This bath was most likely constructed from leftover ruins from the Roman Empire. You'll notice that each of the columns is unique, leading archaeologists to believe that this is an early example of recycling.

Diocesan Museum

On the 3rd of October in 1972, this museum came to with the help of the Apostolic Administrator Bishop of Majorca. The museum had its start in 1775 by order King Felipe V with over 5,000 printed works, 35 of which were incunables. It was later moved in the 1950's to coincide with the present building that was built at the time.

Palma Cathedral (La Seu)

A glorious ode to the French Gothic style, Palma Cathedral seems to ascend from the ocean with its flying buttresses and golden-hued sandstone walls perched on a cliff overlooking the ocean. The cathedral's high ceilings and gorgeous rose windows inlaid with stunning stained glass adds a sense of light and space to the interiors as the sunlight streams in bathing the columned aisles with a warm, multi-hued glow. Master architect Anton Gaudi left his mark on the cathedral in the form of a fascinating Crown of Thorns that's suspended over the altar, wrought from cork and cardboard. Among the cathedral's many gems, the Portal del Mirador, an ornate door designed by Guillem Sagrera depicting scenes from the Last Supper is worth a look.

Castell de Bellver

From a luxurious castle built for King James II in the 14th century to a military prison in the 18th and 19th centuries, Bellver Castle bears testament to Palma de Mallorca's centuries-old history. After the Spanish inquisition, it was later used in the 1930's by dictator Franco to imprison insurgents during the Spanish Civil War. Today, it is one of the most visited sites on the island, offering visitors a spectacular vista of Palma and its surrounding areas that have earned it its name 'Bellver' the word meaning 'beautiful view' in Catalan. A unique feature of this medieval castle is its round shape. The circular freestanding keep is surrounded by three cylindrical towers that look out in three directions while the two-leveled courtyard exhibits architectural styles like vaulted Gothic archways. The castle contains the Municipal Museum of Palma with a permanent collection chronicling the city's rich history.
