4.The Shopping

Whatever the Mallorcan weather , there is so much choice you won’t know where to start! Leather goods, jewellery, designer fashion or home furnishings with a difference, Palma has it all.

5.The Mallorcuisine

In the Advent season Mallorcan Christmas recipes, passed down through generations, are offered at many of the eateries around Palma as well of course as tantalising traditional tapas. The Christmas holiday itself  starts with a huge dinner on Christmas Eve and doesn’t let up until the final slice of Roscón de Reyes cake is finished on Three Kings Day on January 6.
