If it is chilly, it provides a break from the wind. Find a seat in the sun and enjoy some coffee. The street musicians are more annoying than talented. A good place to meet friends in the historic area of Palma.

The Christmas lights in Palma de Mallorca are really very pretty & there is a lovely festive feeling about this lively city at this time of the year, Plaza Major is very central with lots of small streets branching off from it, here the lights are really spectacular, the food in Plaza Major is ok but there are many much...

Have visited many times but first time at Christmas. Very crowded but don't go purposely to eat there. Have eaten at different places there over the time, but nothing to get excited about.

It was a nice square covered all four sides and christmas market stalls in the square as it is the time of the year. As usual lots of artists available and we got our son's caricature done here for 15e to cherish for the rest of our life.

Try the paella, observe the various street act/performers, the buildings, and check out the small booths for jewellry and other offerings. Interesting mix. Worth checking out if you're in the area.

The Plaza Mayor has many shops, bars, cafeterias, restaurants and hotels. The main streets of San Miguel, Colon and Sindicato emanate from this plaza. The day we went there we saw a street market in the plaza. We also took some refreshment at one of the cafeterias on the plaza.

Don't go just for the square, but if passing then take a quick look. The buildings are magnificent but the crowded and taty cafés, bars and shops indicate a tired and less prosperous recent few years. As other have said there is a supermarket under the square but it's in a dingy mall with half of units empty. Nothing wrong... More

Not a good use of the space however, A couple of average restaurants and hawkers selling fake handbags. Could be so much better. Beautiful buildings though and wonderful shopping lanes. A must if your there!

Not worth a dedicated visit, but many routes lead here for walkers and they will be moderately rewarded for their efforts. Yes, have a beverage and pay a bit more but if on holiday, why not. The market-style stalls (check market day if wishing to catch/miss it) are better than many (eg the Saturday flea market on the Ring Road),... More

Lovely square, nice architecture and quaint streets around it, could have been 4 or even 5 stars, it's a shame about the hawkers (street vendors), I've been to loads of european cities and this was by far the worst for hawkers, people trying to make you part with your money, it definitely cheapened the atmosphere of what could be a...
