The old part of town is wonderful to walk and walk. Like most Spanish towns and cities the Placa Major is usually a focal point. Well this one isn’t. Not that it’s awful, it’s just basic.

The Square is always busy and there are the usual mimes and sellers of stuff but the place itself is not that interesting or spectacular. Worth a visit for a short time to get the feel of Palma but there are better places around.
