    You cannot visit Palma without going to the Cathedral. It is simply put, stunning. An impressive building inside and out with a real buzz to the atmosphere. Take time for a really good wander, read up in your guidebook and just take it all in. We did a skip the queue ticket which meant we walked straight in and no hold ups as it can be popular, especially in peak season. We make sure to cover shoulders and legs with t-shirt and shorts as concerned they may not let you in in something strappy, but no worries about that and no rules it seemed. Opposite is the castle of Palma which is also well worth a visit when you are there!

    Its organised into slots, you walk through the caves and it finishes off with a concert at the end. It is stunning and the concert is lovely but does feel you're being herded a bit to get to the end. It also gets really busy so definitely better to book ahead.

    Section 1 or 2 were absolutely amazing and the whole place is very well looked after. The rest felt a little underwhelming in types and quality of fish once you’ve seen such a delightful range. Overall still good value for money!

    You book timeslots and are guided around in small groups. This is what makes it better than the caves in Porto Drach as they provide information and history which is really interesting. Guide was great and amazing how they can switch between all the languages!

    What a fantastic way to spend a cloudy Saturday afternoon or even a sunny one! Such a variety of stalls, tapas bars. Locals doing their shopping, people watching.....the list goes on. Just great to go from one stand to another sampling the tapas with a wee drink at each . Very easy to forget what time of the day it is.

    This is free to visit and well worth it. The building exudes history and is in a central location, easy to find.

    We enjoyed the opportunity to visit the studio and the audio visual that explained how & why it was designed and subsequently created.

    The gallery was a disappointment compared to say Musée Renoir in Cagnes-sur-Mer, or the Picasso Museum in Barcelona.

    Overall glad we went, but not as good as perhaps it could be.

    The attractive mountain village of Valldemossa is dominated by the big Cartoixa, which is the Catalan name for a charterhouse. On some signs one can also read the Spanish name for it: Cartuja. In Italian it would be 'Certosa' (see the famous Certosa di Pavia), in German 'Kartäuse'. All these names (also the misleading English 'charterhouse', which has nothing to do with a 'charter') are derived from the French 'Chartreuse', from the famous monastery (now 'Grande Chartreuse', north of Grenoble), where this order of shared silence and solitude had been founded in the 11th century.

    When coming from Valldemossa centre one will first arrive at the Plaça de la Cartoixa with plane trees. Here is the entrance to the former monastery, where most people will mainly go to see the Chopin Museum in cell No 4. After the secularisation in 1835, when all monastic land was confiscated by the state and sold to private individuals, some of the cells were rented out to visitors.

    The Carthusian monks lead a life in silence, but their cells, consisting generally of three rooms and a garden, were quite comfortable. Here they also had a great view out into the Tramuntana countryside, which one can see, when looking at cell No 4, where Frederic Chopin and George Sand (a female French writer) spent together a rather miserable time in the unusually cold and rainy winter 1838-39.

    The Cartoixa had originally been a royal palace for the kings of Mallorca, built in 1309. When Mallorca became a part of the kingdom of Aragon its functions changed and so 90 years after its construction it was given to the Carthusians, who had the place extensively rebuilt at the beginning of the 18th century.

    A cave’s a cave is a cave you say, and unless you’re visiting the big caves of Mexico or Borneo, then just remember you’re going to walk down a ready made walk way and see some pretty stalactites and mites lit by colourful lights. That said these show cave museums try there best to entice you with audio visual stories etc; here at Hames they need to revamp their videos and step up a gear. The first show explains the history of humans on the island then goes backward to explain why stalactites form. It might have been more interesting to explain why limestone is where it is on the island. The second video in the upper chamber is called Genesis- really the story of earth from the Big Bang theory till now. The graphics are dated, the human history is entirely “white man” oriented, and it’s dull. Needs re making- sorry guys!!
    Down at the lowest chamber at sea level we have a brief “son et lumiere “ with classical opera, again needs a revamp.
    The tour guides aren’t very stimulating, so no fun there.
    Finally some reviewers have complained about the grills in front of the chambers with the fine straws stalactites. This is to stop tourists nicking them!! Put your phone up to the grill if you want a good photo, the camera lens is tiny so it won’t see the grill.
    Just about worth the money I’d say. Don’t take young kids, they’ll be bored.

    Reliable, Punctual, Polite and Helpful - a bit pricey but worth it. Nice clear sign with my name on it at the airport.

    We took the bus no 4 to get out to this museum. If you like Miro this is the place to visit! From here you can also access the nearby beach

    An interesting experience. We visited on a Friday when the chap told us that on Fridays people pay what they want, and the proceeds are for good causes - we then felt obliged to pay a little more than the normal entrance fee! There were three exhibitions on, one of which was particularly interesting. It was about migration across the Mediterranean, forced or otherwise, across the centuries. Very thought provoking. I found the other two exhibitions a bit less approachable but that probably says more about me. Worth visiting if you want a little culture whilst in Palma.

    We came upon this place in passing and decided to enter for a visit. It was well worth it with beautiful cloisters and an ornate chapel

    Wet rainy day so we popped along. Two parts to the museum - an interactive game playing immersive experience upstairs and the trophies etc downstairs. Worth a visit if you like Rafa and/or tennis. Free entry if you are on a weekly tennis programme at the Rafa academy.
