A bit west of downtown in the Santa Catalina neighbourhood, Sa Faixina Park is a large green wedge between the Es Baluard Contemporary Art Museum and the Passeig Marítim. In front there's a memorial to a Nationalist warship (named after the Balearic Islands) torpedoed in the Spanish Civil War. The park links various parts of the city, the Paseo de Sagrera and at the very end, the Santa Catalina Church which gives the neighbourhood its name. Next to the church, the park also connects with the La Riera area (in fact, it was built in the 17th century along the La Riera riverbed leading to the sea). It's a great place to relax after a morning or afternoon roaming Palma's historic centre. Plus you'll usually find outdoor markets and performers doing their thing, which rather adds to the charm.
