Ok, so I failed to do enough research in advance, and that was my own fault.
That aside and in order to help others, can anyone add to this post things to do in the city centre on a Sunday with a family?
We went out yesterday (Sunday) late morning from our hotel with a 9 and 14 year old.
However, we were amazed to find virtually every shop, tabac, any tourist related activities all closed. The few cafe's that were open closed by 1, and most did not reopen till 7pm. We walked around 4kms through the day, and all we found was closed shop front after cloed shop front.
While I expected some shut down in a city centre, this was to a degree I did not expect. Also the temperature was 32, with one reading of 36 outside a pharmacy, so we really needed some cooling down. Was up at Castillet and Palais des Rois de Majorque, and while they looked lovely, we had done a few similar on this holiday.
Not meant to be a negative, but just trying to help future visitors with a handy reference guide for future trips. Thanks in advance.
