Touching the Historical Heart of Magical Mallorca

Travel & Tourism
Mallorca may be famed for its summer sunshine, but this is also an island steeped in historical intrigue. Roman fortifications, Moorish invasions and Christian reoccupation have shaped this land to be what it is today, because with events like the War of Spanish Succession and the Battle of Mallorca, it hasn’t always been the tranquil, idyllic resort you see today in brochures.

If you’re a history buff looking for your next inspiring holiday, Mallorca’s fascinating history, Catalan culture and exquisite scenery may just surprise you.

Culture in the Capital

You can swap pub-crawls for culture-crawls in Palma and there’s a cultural marvel around every corner. The city’s thirteenth century gothic cathedral looms magnificently over the Old Harbour. Later remodelled by Antoni Gaudí himself, the cathedral houses the royal remains of Kings Jaime II and III below a monumental nave. Other cultural highlights include:

Castillo de Bellver. Look out for eastern architectural influences in this fascinating hilltop castle and delve into its history with a visit to the adjoining museum.

Fundación Pilar i Joan Miro. You can truly walk in the footsteps of this famed Catalan artist, because in this gallery full of his works, you’ll be able to marvel at them in the very home that inspired them.

The Magical Monastery of Valldemossa

The awe inspiring fourteenth century Cartuja de Valldemossa is steeped in culture. Built on the site of a Moorish Alcázar, the construction has played host to monks, writers and musicians over the centuries. It was within these walls that Chopin composed his melancholic Raindrop Prelude and George Sand wrote her popular novel, A Winter in Majorca. Perfect for any historian, bookworm or classical aficionado, the monastery is situated in a lovely hilltop town, wedged between the Tramuntana Mountains and the Mediterranean Sea. You’ll have the chance to wander tranquil lanes lined with honey-hued buildings, before stopping for a lunch of fresh fish in the quaint port harbour.

Artistic Adventure in Deja

Nestled in the Valle de los Naranjos is an artistic idyll. Sweeping hills, tiled roofs and green shutters define this timeless village and the air is filled by the sweet aroma of citrus trees. Once home to poet Robert Graves, his former residence has been re-opened to the public and boasts truly wonderful views. Outside the village, pretty coves, gardens and the stunning Miramar Monastery (magnificent coastal views are guaranteed here) are just a stone’s throw away. At the end of the day you can treat yourself to some traditional Balearic cuisine in one of Deja’s renowned restaurants.

How to Get There

Flights to island from the UK are in abundance and, by pre-booking your Mallorca airport transfer before you leave home, you won’t have to worry about navigating public transport or negotiating expensive taxis once you arrive. Your Mallorca airport transfer will take you directly from the airport to your chosen destination, so all you need to do is sit back, relax and soak up Mallorca’s heritage from the moment you arrive.

Beyond resort living, Mallorca is a truly unique place. A rich Catalan culture imbues the island’s past and present, so a visitor can revel in sunshine, history and the tranquil beauty of the landscape.
