Mallorca: the 24 arrived!

One more birthday, one more trip! To change (or not) a bit, this year the destination was once again Spain: Mallorca.

It was only four days, with a brief passage through my dear Seville (you can read my article about one of the most beautiful cities of Andalusia here), but I got the chance to know a good part of the island. Still, I would like to have stayed a few more days to enjoy the beaches and the natural beauty of this Mediterranean island, which for me are the best that Mallorca has.

 

I stayed near Alcúdia, in the north of the island, and it was the best I could have done. I couldn't miss Palma, a city full of life, but that didn't seduce me. The Passeig del Born is very nice for a break and was one of the places I liked most in Palma, which isn't the place for who is looking for tranquility and nature. The Cathedral is very beautiful but I was disappointed to know that the ticket didn't include the visit to the terraces (must be marked in advance).

But anyway, Mallorca is much more than Palma!

 

Alcúdia is a small medieval town, with its narrow streets within the old walls, full of shops and restaurants, and that made me travel back in time.

Nearby is Pollença, a historic village worth visiting. I decided to come here for dinner and I recommend the Q11 restaurant, in the main square of the village. Here I had one of the best ravioli so far and I also had the opportunity to sample the Mallorcan wine - which, by the way, is quite good.

The sunset at Cape Formentor was another high point of this trip. Inserted in the Serra de Tramuntana, declared a World Heritage by UNESCO, here, next to the lighthouse and on top of the cliffs that fall on the sea, the view is just fantastic.

 

Of the many beaches that Mallorca has, let me tell you which were my favorites: the Playa del Muro, with an extensive fine sand and transparent and warm water; and the one located in Caló des Moro, near Cala s'Almunia, in the northeast of the island. The beach is very small, with large rocks and difficult access but the water and beauty are indescribable, no doubt it was one of the things I liked most in Mallorca.

What will be the trip of my 25th birthday?
