Old Town Palma

An intense and eclectic architectural mix.

One of the most interesting things about Palma's old quarter is how it mixes such a variety of cultures and styles throughout its narrow streets and lanes. Starting from the cathedral (also dubbed "the cathedral of the sea" — centuries ago the water came right up to its enormous walls) all the way uptown, you'll find traces of the Muslim era such as Moorish arches that span many of the narrow streets from side to side, as well as stately homes from the 16th through 18th centuries. And of course a lot of Gothic, beginning with the enormous Cathedral, and a goodly number of Modernist buildings from the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
