To escape from the daily routine and chilly weather, we decided to visit Palma de Mallorca, Spain. In no time we came up with the itinerary. The mere thought of visiting such a beautiful place was delightful.
We started our day with the visit to one of the most ornamental village ‘Valldemossa’ situated in the hills of Tramuntana range. On our way we met some localites, despite the language barrier we established an unsaid connection. They were very kind and welcoming.
Blonde stone streets, beautifully decorated houses, traditional cafes, galleries, gift shops, rich vegetation and Royal Carthusian monastery makes Valldemossa prettiest village of Mallorca.
Before heading to Port de Soller, we were caught by striking Sa Foradada. The view was so spectacular that we couldn’t take our eyes off. Blue water, blue sky and a steady rock with a hole.
But this was not enough for Archduke Ludwig Salvador, so he bought the entire estate and built rotunda ‘Son Marroig’ offering breathtaking view of Foradada and coastline
Journey to Port de soller was relaxing; before heading to the port, we stopped by in a spanish restaurant and had delicious fish and spinach croquettes and seafood Paella. Vintage tram trip to port brought back childhood memories. Calm and shallow beach and peaceful harbor was the perfect way to end the day.
Trip to Mallorca is incomplete without visiting cala (cove) and among so many beautiful calas to decide which one to visit is always a challenge. Finally we settled to Cala Anguila. For beach lovers this is heaven. Crystal clear turquoise water, bright sunny day, pleasant breeze; what more we could have asked for.
After a relaxing day at cala, it was time to explore Palma city, capital of Mallorca which is at its best at night. Historical buildings, cafes, shopping complexes, theatres, local markets, narrow pathways were so much fun. Magnificent Palma gothic cathedral (La Seu) at the sea front is truly the spotlight of the city.
With this, a wonderful trip came to an end; leaving behind memories to cherish forever
Adiós Palma de Mallorca!!
