Porto Cristo and Deep Blue Seas

Before exploring Palma and admiring the Mallorcan countryside, I first reached east for a much needed me-time.

Three days with book in one hand, cocktail in the other and a bit of discovering in between.

Unwinding at Castell Son Claret

After two busy days exploring Palma, we headed to Es Capdella, Calvia to switch off and completely relax.

Surrounded by 132-acres of beautiful nature and La Sierra de Tramontana mountains, declared a World Heritage Site, Castell Son Claret was the perfect choice of peace and luxury.

Exploring Palma de Mallorca

Despite having less than 48 hours in Palma, we wanted to see as many unique shops, art galleries, cultural sites as possible, and try all traditional food.

Mainly grapes. Served in a wine glass.

After we dropped our bags off at the hotel, we headed out to explore.

Naturally, one of the main attractions is the Cathedral de Mallorca (La Seu) standing proud by the seafront. It was built between the 13th and 17th centuries, but the famous architect Antoni Gaudí redesigned parts of the interior in the early 20th century. Magnificent.

Staying in Palacio Ca Sa Galesa, Palma de Mallorca

When I started to plan my trip to Mallorca, I knew I wanted to stay in the heart of Palma for couple of nights so when I came across Palacio Ca Sa Galesa, lovely little hotel tucked away behind the Cathedral de Mallorca and a short walk to all restaurants, tapas bars and seaside, I was sold.
