Read on to find out about 24 beautiful towns in Mallorca.

​​1. Palma De Mallorca (Palma City).

Palma attracts millions of visitors per year and has one of the busiest international airports in Spain, so it can be a bit ‘touristy’ at peak times. However if you can avoid peak times, Palma is still one of the best towns to visit in Mallorca. See the best rates on Palma accommodation.

These beautiful gardens below are just behind the cathedral and completely free to visit.

For shopping, the Placa Major is surrounded by a maze of narrow winding streets lined with small independent boutiques and shops. Meanwhile Palma’s high streets are packed with designer labels and international brands. There is an array of decent restaurants, bars and coffee shops too.

The cathedral known as La Seu, a Gothic landmark from the 13th century, dominates the bay of Palma. Just next door is the Almudaina Arab fortress, converted to a royal residence. West of the city, hilltop Bellver Castle is a medieval fortress with a distinctive circular shape. It was the first circular castle in Europe, and is surrounded by lush green pine forest.

There are several neighbourhoods in Palma, each with a different vibe. Palma also has a cruise port which can berth the largest cruise ships in the world.

The City of Palma was voted the best place to live in the world in 2015 by the Sunday Times.

2. Pollença.

Nestled at the foothills of the Tramuntana mountain range, Pollença is a captivating town that boasts a rich history and a vibrant arts scene. Its picturesque town square, Plaça Major, is a hub of activity, hosting lively markets and festivals. Climb the famous Calvari steps to reach the hilltop chapel and be rewarded with breathtaking views of the town and the surrounding landscapes. For beach lovers, nearby Port de Pollença offers pristine sandy shores and crystal-clear waters.

Pollensa also has a Roman bridge which is still in use, and a mountain locally known as ‘The Puig’. There are 365 steps to the top of the Puig but it is worth the climb for the fantastic views from the top.

This is one of the best towns in Mallorca for holidays in the summer months, when there are festivals and cultural events set in the attractive Santo Domingo cloisters. There are also Mallorcan food markets and even a battle-reenactment (be warned, it’s loud). These events take place in August as part of the town’s annual fiestas.
