Visit Some Mesmerising Places During Your Majorca Holidaysby Daisy Wilkinson Travel Guides
Majorca, also called 'Mallorca', is one of the immensely popular travel destinations in the Mediterranean. Every year, millions of tourists visit this largest Balearic island of Spain to enjoy their holidays exploring its gorgeous beaches, enchanting countryside, and fascinating hill towns. The local culture was beginning to get overshadowed by too much of tourist activities sometime in the past. However, the locals have now begun to get back to their roots and are now restoring the old buildings and abandoned farmhouses. During your holiday on this fantastic Spanish island, you'll get to visit some of its popular attractions.
You can start the sightseeing tour during your Majorca holidays with Palma de Mallorca, which gives you the benefit of enjoying cultural experiences and seaside relaxation in a single destination. The capital city has some majestic attractions in store for its visitors, such as Catedral de Mallorca, a monumental cathedral built using sandstone. Most of the interiors of this cathedral were remodelled in the early 20th century by Antoni Gaudi. Another historic building is a 13th-century castle known as Castillo de Bellver. Cala Major, Playa de Palma, and Playa del Arenal are the beaches you can visit while in Palma de Mallorca.
The historic village of Valldemossa is yet another charming place you can visit during your time spent in Majorca. It is situated between the picturesque Tramuntana Mountains and the Mediterranean Sea. You can take a walk on its steep pedestrian streets while the mountainous parts of the village are covered with lush vegetation. A beautiful harbour called the Port of Valldemossa still appears like a small fishing village and would give you the chance to enjoy some fresh seafood in any of the local restaurants. Don't forget to visit a Carthusian monastery built in the 14th century called Real Cartuja de Valldemossa.
A visit to the scenic town of Alcudia would give you the chance to witness some interesting historic monuments and savour the delicious local cuisine. This medieval town has walls built around it and has been wonderfully preserved over the years. It was fortified during the Middle Ages to offer strong protection against the pirates who were a great threat during those times. The winding streets and Renaissance-era homes of this town give it a distinct old-world charm. Some of the important buildings located in this part of Majorca are Santa Ana, Baroque Chapel of San Crist, and Sant Jaume.
Soller is a lovely town on this island destination, which is situated in a serene valley and surrounded by mesmerising olive groves and citrus orchards. You can enjoy a ride through all these delightful landscapes in the popular Soller Train. While in the town, you can witness the Church of Sant Bartomeu and several other attractions. Just outside this town is an elegant residence of Moorish Vizier called Alfabia Palace. It was built with a vast area of gardens home to fragrant orange and lemon trees along with date palms and bamboo plants. This palace also houses some valuable paintings and furniture.
