“Very buzzy”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

This is the main square in Palma and is full of mime artists, cafes, stalls, elegant shops. It is
always very buzzy and a real meeting place for Europeans. In the afternoons, it is a lovely
area to sit over a fresh orange juice and watch the world go by in a real sun trap!

“Always something to see!”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

A beautiful large town square surrounded by elegant buildings with numerous cafes around its edges and most of the time, an eclectic supply of entertainment within. These can range from operatic sopranos, through strange "statues" to jazz combos - you name it, at some time, it will appear hear!

“Disappointed”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

A bit of an anti climax. Nice enough to walk through on the way to somewhere.
It will probably liven up as the season gets underway.

“A traditional Square for cafe's”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

Placa major is a large rectangular ''Square'' built in a traditional fashion. It is literally half way between the Cathedral and Placa Espanya. This ''trail'' is a fantastic walk through historical sections with Placa major being a great stopping point for a drink. The Placa is alive with street performers, cafes and of course tourists. Worth a walk through.
