Majorca reportedly has 300 days of sunshine per year, but you may get a cloudy morning one day or you may simply want to escape the midday heat if you’re travelling with young kids. So what is there to do indoors for families in this beautiful island?
Are you ready to explore our favourite indoor activities for families in Majorca.
1. Palma Cathedral
The Catedral-Basílica de Santa María de Mallorca (commonly referred to by locals as La Seu) is a Gothic masterpiece, and Majorca’s most iconic building. Visitors can indeed discover its fascinating history, dating back to the 14th century, as you wander around its cavernous, ornate interiors. La Seu has been dubbed “The Cathedral of Light” thanks to its 61 stained glass windows, including the enormous central rose window, crafted from over 1,200 pieces of glass.
While you’re in the capital you may also want to take the bus up to Castell de Bellver, a 14th-century circular castle with a unique round tower, that perches on a hill above the capital. The ground floor has a museum whilst the empty upper chambers are perfect for kids peering out and running around.
