Sixt Tips

Palma is the capital city of both Mallorca and the Balearic Islands. The name, Palma, originated during the period of Roman settlement although archaeological finds show that people have lived here since the Bronze Age and before. During the Middle Ages, when under Arabic rule, the city was called Madina Mayurqa. It was reconquered by Jaume I of Aragon in 1229 and later saw attacks by Berber pirates and invasion by the French-Spanish army. The city became prosperous during the reign of Carlos III when it was allowed to trade freely with the Indies.

Make the most of your rental vehicle by exploring city sites like the Palau March with its 20th-century sculptures by famous names such as Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth; Antonin Gaudi's cathedral or the quirky Museu de sa Jugueta which exhibits over 3,000 models and toys. Park your vehicle safely before dining on a mix of traditional Mallorcan dishes and innovative Spanish cuisine accompanied by fine wine. Later in the evening, dip into the nightclub scene of the Passeig Maritim and Club de Mar. The cultural life of the city includes folk music, opera, pop concerts and movies.
