“Nice street market”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

We visited here over Christmas and there were great stalls with nice products. The square was also nicely decorated and very atmospheric.
Can get very crowded as it's very central so not one for those who hate crowds.

“Town square”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

After walking around many shops and stores we found ourselves at the Placa Major, a big town square full of cafes and shops. There were a couple of street artists doing their thing and it was nice to catch our breath over an overpriced cold drink. Enjoyable for a stop off.

“Placa Major”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

What once was a lovely square ruined by people posing as statues every few metres especially when the cruise ships in town. If you are not on a cruise try and avoid central Palma on the days and times they disgorge thousands to wander through the centre.
Check the prices carefully on the cafes around the square, go off the main pedestrian north south route for better deals.

“Nice place to take a break”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Always worth a visit somewhere to take a break while walking the city.Full of cafe's so a stop for pizza is a must for us.Must say the street entertainers coming to your table one after the other is very annoying so sometimes we eat inside.note there is an extra charge for eating out on the terrace
