PALMA AND ITS OLD TOWN
The old quarter of Palma de Mallorca, also known as the historic centre, houses several quarters: Cort, Jaime III, La Lonja-Borne, Puig de Sant Pere, Plaza de los Patines, La Calatrava, La Missió, El Mercat, Monti-sion, Sant Jaume, Sant Nicolau, La Seu and Sindicato.
The old town is bordered by La Avenidas, where there was previously a wall that marked the town’s boundaries. Past generations lived in these walls. Starting from the twentieth century, the town began to expand and the walls were destroyed.
This area contains many of Palma’s historical monuments: the cathedral, the Royal Palace of La Almudaina, the Arab baths, the Diocesan museum, churches and convents.
There are many places worth visiting: Parc de la Mar, Borne promenade, Plaza Mayor and commercial avenues like Jaime III or San Miguel.
