Palma de Mallorca is the capital of the Balearic island of Mallorca in Spain. Palma is a modern, resort city overlooking the Bay of Palma and is home to historic landmarks dating back to the Moorish occupation. The city is backed by mountains and overlooks the Mediterranean Sea. In the Old Town, along the narrow lanes you will discover cafes and restaurants ideal for a business lunch or casual evening meeting, and there are a number of hotels in Palma catering to your business needs.
What activities will I enjoy outside of working hours in Palma?
Either with business partners or colleagues, you'll enjoy exploring the old town, with its winding, cobbled lanes and historic buildings. Relax along the harbour, or head to the Blue Flag beach, just past Palma Cathedral, with its beachside bars and restaurants. For a glimpse of authentic Mallorca, stroll the streets of Santa Catalina, take a lunchbreak in its market hall and cafes with local specialties on offer. Should your hotel not offer a pool, head to one of the local health clubs. You can also unwind at one of Palma's luxurious seafront spas with a massage and wellness treatment on your day off.
What does Palma have to offer in terms of business facilities and options?
Besides music and theatre events, the Auditorium de Palma de Mallorca hosts conventions and meetings, with an auditorium and several smaller rooms to suit all events. The centre offers the latest in modern technology. When you are out and about, several Internet cafes are available to access internet, phone and fax services. Access to the city is via the Palma de Mallorca Airport (PMI), located 8km east of Palma, from which you can either rent a car or use the regular bus service.
Are there any interesting locations to visit near my hotel in Palma?
From your Palma hotel you can explore the older quarter of the city, which boasts baroque palaces and churches, including the Palma Cathedral. The 13th-century cathedral overlooks the bay.
