Beautiful avenue in the centre of Palma. Lovely cafés and shops along the Born. This area has recently been refurbished and greatly enhanced.

Walking along the street surrounded by shade from the trees looking at the nice shops and cafés make you appreciate what holidays are all about. Very nice place for a walk we even found a Mc Donald's Cafe for the kids and a C&A for my wife Happy Days.

There are a few boutiques, then the Zara, H&M and C&A, and a few more stores, but that is about it. Not much original or grand... More

This is the most elegant and delightful place in Palma to stroll and shop and luxuriate at one of the many outdoor cafes. Gorgeous 18 the century architecture everywhere and beautiful Moorish gardines and fountains highlight this lovely avenue.

The Passeig des Born is one of the principal shopping streets in Palma de Mallorca and one can find many high end stores here, as well as restaurants. It is very entertaining to see what the shops offer tourists.

Love love loved it so many shops and boutiques something for everyone's pockets from designer to chain stores many set in magnificent old buildings. A girl cannot get enough of this. Relax afterwards in many tree lined cafés also many more shops off Plaza Mayor if you want a change.

Central with small pedestrian streets running off. Busy with taxis and buses at each end. Main base to explore Palma from.
