“Central square in Palma de Mallorca old town.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

This is one of many squares in Palma but as the name say its the Major square in the old town. Its rater large and have arcades around the square that brings you shade in the summer. It connect to the shopping areas that stretch from Jaume III, Born up to San Miguel and Sindicat.

“Busy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Right in the middle of all the small back roads of Palma and surrounded by shops after shops. The typical statue men dressed up for tips were very good. Good atmosphere.

“simple big place in a middle of the town”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

it is full with shops and reastaurants around. it is not work tajing any tour or transport to see the main attractions unless you have a mobility problem. worth going where there are no tourist - it gives an 'explorational' feeling.

“Rather Dull”

It is the hub of many streets and is archtecturally imposing but the restaurants around the perimiter are rather pedestrian.
