Car Rental in Palma de Mallorca
General Information about Palma de Mallorca
Palma is a busy, cosmopolitan city in true Spanish tradition, its city centre full of shopping centres and narrow lanes. Restored buildings surrounded by ancient city walls, and modern boulevards.
The city, set on the beautiful bay Bahia de Palma has become a popular holiday destination of the rich and famous. Despite the invasion of foreign tourists Palma has kept its local flavour, particularly in its old quarter lined by cafes and tapas bars. Often the native dialect of mallorquin is the only language heard in the backstreets.
The airport of the city is Palma de Mallorca Airport (PMI), previously known as Son Sant Joan Airport and is located 8 km (5 miles) east of Palma de Mallorca, adjacent to the village of Can Pastilla. It is the third largest airport in Spain, after Madrid's Barajas Airport and Barcelona Airport.

The cathedral is dedicated to Palma’s patron saint, San Sebastian, and contains some saintly relics and pieces of the True Cross in its treasury.
Also visit Palau del'Almudaina, opposite the cathedral in Palma stands an austere fortress palace that was erected by the Moors and later became the residence of the kings of Mallorca. Inside, most rooms and corridors are bare, but there are some beautiful Flemish Gobelin tapestries on display as well as a few antiques, art works and suits of armour.
The palace, on the Plaza Reina, is surrounded by a pleasant Moorish-style garden sporting fountains, which offers panoramic views of the harbour.
