Palma is full of cultural influences from both the Mediterranean as well as northern Africa. This is clearly reflected in the city’s architecture including its many stunning cathedrals and pedestrian squares. There is also plenty for the kids to enjoy, from an old wooden train ride which takes you through the mountains to spotting the marine wildlife at the city’s aquarium.
Summer is wonderful in Palma as this is when temperatures are at their highest. However, if you don’t mind slightly milder weather, you might want to head to the Majorcan capital during the spring months as there are usually fewer tourists during this period. The autumn and winter are other seasons which see Palma experience cooler temperatures, but this is also when you start to see the most rainfall in the city.
