    If you are in Palma this is an obvious place to visit as it's next to the Cathedral and forms part of the skyline of the city.
    Pleasant place to walk around and the main interest is the architecture as there is little furniture on display. Each room had some background information displayed in several languages which was helpful.
    There are great views from the terrace looking out to the sea and port area and the inner courtyard is nice little oasis .
    A nice place to spend some time wandering around. It is impressive and and still used occasionally for exhibitions and receptions.

    This place is easily overshadowed by the Rafa Nadal Sports Centre, but should not be missed.

    The museum has literature in several languages in every room (e.g., English, French, German and Spanish), which was quite impressive given its relatively small size. There are lovely mosaics on the floor and activities for kids. The souvenir shop also has very interesting items.

    Entrance is for free, but do consider making a donation. Take note of the hours and the fact that the museum is closed on Tuesdays.

    Moli d'en Nofre is am old Majorcan windmill located in the little town of the center of the island called Montuiri. It is a well-conserved old windmill, where there is a little ethnographic museum kept by the owner of the building. The owner explained me the history of the museum and the family and it was very interesting. Despite this, the museum is little and it has few old things.

    Finca Son Real is a real gem hidden away on the road between Can Picafort and Arta, a short drive or a €15 taxi from Playa de Muro drops you at an old farm with tracks that lead down to the beach.

    Path 4 is the best for birders, the area is great for red legged partridge, hoopoe and woodchat shrike. There is a small green sign with binoculars down the pathway that leads to a freshwater pond overlooked by a hide, this is great for Crossbill, Serin, Nightingale, Wryneck, Turtle Dove and a host of other birds that make use of the fresh water for bathing and drinking.

    A few hours of peace and you are almost guaranteed something good to see.

    Further down the number 4 track is an area of woodland excellent for Firecrest and further down still is scrubland which contains an abundance of Chat, Balearic Warbler and Lark.

    If Butterflies or Dragonflies are more your target then follow path 1 all the way down to the building at the bottom of the path, then look right to the hidden track heading up the fence line, this leads all the way back up through an area full of 2 Tailed Pasha butterflies and their caterpillars on the Tree Strawberry plants, at the top is a small pond full of dragonflies. Lots of Preying Mantis up this path too.

    Any of the 4 paths will find Woodchat Shrike and the beach is a mass of seashore plants covered with butterflies, moths and bees. Audouin's Gull frequent the beach along with Kentish Plover and Turnstones.

    Lastly keep an eye out for small Tortoise, the Herman's Tortoise frequent the area and are often seen inching along for a bite to eat, they are small and well worth looking for.

    Yes its a nice place for a walk but it offers so much more for the wildlifers...

    We visited the municipal museum which included the Chopin museum and the Palace of King Sancho.

    The Chopin museum is not that large and the municipal museum has some nice spaces, with some interesting art and good stained glass windows in the church. We thought the King's palace was possibly the most interesting part. Especially as we were there for the Chopin recital.

    The cost at €19 for the two of us is acceptable.

    Excursion with Vacations to Go .. this bus trip took us up a tortuous road through the Taramuntata Mountains of Palma... beautiful scenery along a dangerous roadway with a n entertaining guide and a very capable driver. The village was worth seeing as was the scenery along the route. Having been to Palma previously, we wanted to see more of the landscape. Well worth it!

    In Mallorca standards I should give it 10 stars.
    Pretty decent museum, lack of English description, cheap. Worth to visit.

    The Roman Museum was very good - it is quite small and we only spent about 15 minutes there but there were some lovely little artifacts although the explanations were only in Spanish. It is included in the €4 ticket for the Roman ruins of Pollentia.

    This small museum is dedicated to Fray Junipero Serra, the Mallorquin monk who first explored and preached in California. Gives an interesting sight of the history of America, obviosly linked to Spain and Mallorca. Worth a vist if you are around.
