Don't miss the opportunity to witness the vibrant local festivals and traditions, including the Fiestas de San Sebastián and the Easter processions.

When it comes to dining out, Palma's culinary scene is a gastronomic delight. Savour the freshest seafood at the local waterfront restaurants. Try the traditional "ensaimada" pastry, a sweet and spiral-shaped delight, or indulge in "sobrassada," a spicy cured sausage. Visit the bustling markets, like Mercat de l'Olivar, to sample regional delicacies. Pair your meal with a glass of crisp Mallorcan white wine or "pomada," a gin and lemonade cocktail, for a true taste of the Mediterranean.

Palma offers diverse entertainment options for all tastes. Stroll down Paseo del Borne, a lively avenue filled with boutiques, cafes, and street performers.
