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 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.

Address: Plaça de la Seu, s/n, 07001 Palma, Illes Balears, Spain

Cuevas del Drach are world famous limestone caves, they are the largest and most visited of Majorca’s numerous caves. ‘The Caves of the Dragon’ form a huge underground network, and include Europe’s largest underground lake, where daily classical music concerts are performed – a truly amazing experience. You can choose to explore the caves with or without a guide, but all visits include the classical music concert and boat trip on the lake. We recommend you buy your ticket online in advance as it does get busy in high season.

The caves are located in pretty Porto Cristi, just a few minutes walk from the sea – this is a lovely area to explore afterwards if the weather brightens up.
