Find out why Palma will make you feel passionate about culture.

Palma will make you fall in love with its Mediterranean culture. The Balearics' urban destination par excellence welcomes you with emblematic buildings such as the City Hall, the Cathedral, Bellver Castle, La Lonja, the Almudaina Palace and the Arab Baths, amongst others.

The Cathedral is the flagship, but there are many other parish churches that are worth visiting, such as San Jaime, Santa Eulàlia, San Miguel, San Nicolás and Santa Cruz. And what about the range of museums, covering tendencies from the past and from today? Palma's museums, exhibition halls and art galleries will leave you open mouthed.

Palma is a source of inspiration for international artists

Thanks to its location in the Mediterranean, a key route between continents, Palma has played host to many civilizations that have had a cultural and artistic influence. Many artists have found inspiration in this city and on the island of Majorca, even setting up home here, as in the case of Joan Miró, who left his mark amongst the local artists. At present, one of Majorca's artists with the highest international profile is Miquel Barceló. The city of Palma has two major contemporary art museums: The Pilar i Joan Miró Foundation and the museum of Es Baluard . However, Palma's offer is far from being limited to these two major centres; Palma has many more museums and art galleries dedicated exclusively to contemporary art. To discover Palma's range of art galleries, visit the websites of the city's two most important associations: AIGAB and ArtPalma.
