Palma De Mallorca by Freki

Hi guys - some pics from my latest trip, this time to Palma De Mallorca" the main city on Mallorca - a mediterranean island belonging to Spain..

It wasn't especially sunny nor warm - it is winter after all - but it's still a nice place that I'm looking forward to revisiting some years down the road..

Anyways enough talk, let's get to the pictures...

Lovely shots. Having been so many times to Mallorca and never actually into the capital, it was very interesting to see these piccies. And the weather doesn't look too bad either. What sort of temperature was it? Did it rain at all?

I think that Palma is one of the most beautiful and unknowed city in Europe, only the cathedral,the Bellver castle, and the views are simply amazing

Mallorca, the Germans' second home! A friend of mine who's from Spain told me they even have signs in German in the island!

Nice shots, Freki. I'd love to have the time you have to do some travelling too. Nice shots. I thought the city would look more different than mainland Spanish cities... dunno, summer resort, island...

Nice, love Mallorca. such a beautiful island. And Palma has really some nice spots. So much transformation in recent decades. Still remeber it back from the old days before the new airport and the ring motorway.

Most tourists from the U.K. bypass Palma which is just as well !
Very Spanish city which is not as well known as Barcelona, Seville etc. but has a great atmosphere and location - will be back again someday.

Very nice pictures as usual, Freki!
Looks like a very pleasant city with interesting (old) architecture. The cathedral is gorgeous!

Jaja, well I've always wanted to see what the city itself looks like seeing as it is pretty large!

Well myself and my family were no exception, we last went in 2003 and they all wanted to go up to Alcudia and Pollenca for two weeks of sunning, not realising it would actually be hotter when we got back to the UK. Hopefully I will get into Palma the next time I go to Mallorca.

well, is posible that the train arrives to alcudia in the next years, so, people who stay at the north, will be able to come to Palma easily and faster
