Your guide to Porto Petro holidays
One of the main attractions near Porto Petro is the Parc Natural de Mondrago. Made up of forests, farmland and beaches, it was given national park status as a way of preserving the natural beauty of Mallorca. The site is routed by footpaths and there is also the opportunity to cycle through the park but don't cycle too fast as you may miss seeing the wildlife, in particular, the endangered tortoises.
An hour's drive away from Porto Petro is the capital city of Palma. Palma is seeping with culture and history and a wonderful city to explore. Between visiting cathedrals adorned with intricate historical mosaics and old fortresses, there is plenty to keep visitors busy. In particular, the Bellver castle is unmissable as the round, Gothic castle is the first of its kind in Europe. It once served as the residence for the King of Majorca too. After a full day of sightseeing, there is no better way to enjoy the warm evening sun than to enjoy several plates of tapas and listen to the live music playing in the streets. Palma's nightlife will have you dancing 'til the sun comes up.
