    Explore the 14th-century royal palace Almudaina and then meander through the enchanting streets of Palma, pausing in the some of the more atmospheric patio courtyards. Moors built the palace, and although it has been renovated extensively over the centuries, it still reflects the best qualities of Moorish architecture. The seemingly impenetrable design of the palace lives up to the name Almudaina, which means “fortress.” Palma is also known for the dozens of leafy patio courtyards that adjoin the stately homes in Old Town. Their styles may vary from Gothic to Baroque, but most all of them feature beautiful archways, columns and staircases with wrought-iron accents. As a contrast to these rather intimate venues, you will enjoy free time in Palma’s expansive open-air Plaza Mayor, which is lined with one-of-a-kind shops. For a spectacular view of Palma, you will pause for photos at hilltop Bellver Castle, the only circular gothic castle in Europe.


    HIGHLIGHTS
    • Visit the royal palace Almudaina, which still reflects its 14th-century Moorish design.
    • Enjoy a leisurely walk through some of the Palma’s most atmospheric patio courtyards.
    • Browse the shops around Plaza Mayor, the city’s most prominent gathering spot.
    • Pause for photos at Bellver Castle, which perches atop a hill overlooking the harbor.


    HELPFUL HINTS
    • Dress in weather-appropriate clothing.
    • Wear flat comfortable walking shoes.

    Duration 5 hrs

    Spend hours relaxing on Santa Ponsa Beach, perhaps the loveliest stretch of sand in town. The name is a reference to the Roman villa Sancta Pontia that once stood where King James I of Aragon landed in 1229 to conquer the occupying Moors. A cross at the marina marks the occasion. Today, the golden beach of Santa Ponsa is revered for its typically calm sheltered waters, which earned a prestigious Blue Flag designation for clarity and purity. While there, you might take a refreshing swim, bask in the sun and lounge about on a towel with nothing more on your mind than total relaxation. If you want a break from the beach, feel free to explore the shops on the promenade along the sand. Although Santa Ponsa is usually somewhat crowded, the less-visited beach Caló d’en Palliser is just a few blocks away. Later, you will dine on tapas at the beachside restaurant El Mercador de Mar.


    HIGHLIGHTS:
    • Spend about four hours at popular Santa Ponsa Beach doing whatever you please. • Take a refreshing swim in the sea, which earned a Blue Flag designation for water quality. • Shop along the promenade that follows the beach, if you wish. • Dine on tapas at a restaurant at the southern end of the beach.


    HELPFUL HINTS:
    • Dress in weather-appropriate clothing. • Wear flat comfortable walking shoes.

    Gaze out over the sea from several spectacularly scenic hilltops, where you will tour a 14th-century castle and the former palace of an Austrian archduke.


    After departing from the pier, you will soon arrive at Bellver Castle, a spectacular Gothic landmark from the 14th century. Its round design is unusual among Spanish castles, and although seemingly impenetrable, the fortress never served a defensive purpose.


    As you ramble about the hilltop castle taking photos, you will appreciate the origin of its name, which means “lovely view” in Catalan. Few panoramas are quite so beautiful.


    Continuing on, you will enjoy a picturesque drive inland, passing through Valldemossa, the island’s highest town. Still renowned for Polish composer Fréderic Chopin and French author George Sand spending the winter of 1838-1839 in a monastery here, the town has retained its atmospheric charm.


    Nearby, you will find Son Marroig, the former palace of Archduke Luis Salvador of Austria. The estate is handsomely decorated with period furnishings and makes quite the setting for you to enjoy an aperitif under the Carrara marble rotunda that overlooks the sea. The oddly shaped rock formation that you will see jutting into the water is Na Foradada, which means “pierced rock,” a reference to the gaping 60-foot vertical hole in the center of the rock.


    The panoramic view from the nearby Mirador de Na Foradada restaurant will be just as magnificent. Lunch will consist of a traditional mixed paella cooked over a wood-fired grill.

    Stroll the cobblestone paths of Alfabia Gardens, an oasis of greenery that surrounds an estate dating to the 13th century. An official Cultural Heritage Site, the gardens contain rare species from all over the world. While meandering about, you may see pomegranate trees with twisted trunks, Indian horse chestnuts, Spanish firs and the Queen’s Garden, an enchanting greenspace redesigned for Isabella II’s visit in the mid-19th century. Even so, the highlight may be the 72-column pergola adorned with dozens of sculptures and concealed jets that shoot graceful arcs of water through the air. Following a leisurely lunch in the gardens, you will visit Bellver Castle, a spectacular Gothic landmark from the 14th century. Its round design is unusual among Spanish castles and the seemingly impenetrable fortress is just as fascinating inside. As you ramble about the hilltop castle, you will appreciate the origin of its name Bellver, which means “lovely view” in Catalan.


    HIGHLIGHTS:
    • Enjoy the serenity of Alfabia Gardens, a botanical gem built around a 13th-century estate. • Follow the cobblestone paths through one exotic garden area after another. • Explore the 14th-century Gothic landmark Bellver Castle and take in the panoramic views.


    HELPFUL HINTS:
    • Dress in weather-appropriate clothing. • Wear flat comfortable walking shoes.

    Sample a thoughtfully chosen selection of wines at Tianna Negre, a vineyard that produces several lines of wine made with indigenous Mallorcan grapes.


    After departing from the pier, you will enjoy a panoramic drive through Palma de Mallorca, during which the guide will point out historical landmarks such as Bellver Castle. The famed Gothic landmark has overlooked the city since the 14th century.


    Continuing on into the island’s interior, you will soon arrive at Tianna Negre, a family-owned and operated winery originally planted entirely with Manto Negro grapes. As you will discover while touring the estate, other grape varieties now flourish in the two vineyards. In fact, Tianna Negre is dedicated to recovering native Palma grape varieties that disappeared following the phylloxera scourge that destroyed countless vineyards in the 19th century.


    During brunch and a tasting in the cellar, you can expect to sample as many as a half-dozen wines that reflect the terroir and the lime-rich, clay textured soil. You may be served a namesake Tianna Negre red blend made from Manto Negro and Syrah grapes, a Tianna Blanc with notes of ripe fruit from Giró Ros grapes, and a pink rosé with hints of grapefruit.


    If you sample a wine from the vineyard’s Ses Nines line, you will notice that the label features a photo of a child skipping rope. The child became the mother of the winery’s founders. She inherited a small vineyard that over time grew to become Tianna Negre.
