There are many things to see and places to go around the island of Majorca. In the city of Mallorca make sure you visit Belver Castle, the first circle castle in all European history, the Gothic architectural wonder Exchange Silk of Palma, and the ancient mills of El Jonquet. Enjoy the freedom to tour the island on your own schedule with a Mallorca four by four car hire.
The Parc de la Mar (Park of the Sea) is just south of La Seu Cathedral, past the town walls. Here you can come and sit outside in a lovely shaded area with rows of outdoor wooden pews.
Take your Mallorca 4wd car hire down the quiet Ca'n Serra street near the Convent of the Cathedral and visit one of the few remnants of Palma's Moorish past. Known as the Banys Árabs, the small two-roomed brick building that once housed the bath is actually of Byzantine origins, dating back to the 11th century. The bath room features a cupola with five oculi which let in dazzling natural light.
Also here are the gardens of Ca'n Fontirroig, where you can see sardinian warblers, house sparrows, cacti, palm trees, and a wide range of flowers and ferns. The floor over the hypocaust of the bath house has been worn away where the many visitors have stood in the center, to photograph the entrance and the beautiful garden beyond it.
With a 4 wheel drive car Mallorca you can visit some of the more rural areas of the island. Don't miss Serra de Tramuntana, a wonderful range of mountains that run along the north-west coast of Mallorca. Soller is a beautiful town in the mountains, notable for its Port de Soller.
