“Enjoy part of Spanish life”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

A lovely square close to the old town with cafes and market stalls giving a varied side of local mallorcan crafts. Often various entertainers also frequent the square making a visit a very interesting event. Also there are varoius shops in the underground arcade well worth a look.

Good place to visit and people watch. An abundance of street cafes and shops. For those interested in local history there are museums nearby.

“Nice place with street artists and restaurants”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

When you are at the Placa Major don't forget to visit the shops under the Placa. Entrance is through the Escalators. Not spectacular but maybe you can find a real bargin !

“Vibrant Placa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

The square is very vibrant and worth a visit to stand/sit and absorb the atmosphere. Some very od but interesting characters perform here.

“Restaurants”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

Had I not read the historical information about Place Major I would have no idea what its significance is to Palma. Today it is a large enclosed central square with one or two shops and an overabundance of average restaurants at the ground level. Sometimes there are crowds of people there, sometimes it is almost empty. If you spend time in the center of Palma, you will encounter Placa Major. It lacks ambience!
