I’m in Mallorca, Spain at least once a year for the Mallorca Smooth Jazz Festival. The festival takes place at the end of April every year, and is hosted at the Protur Biomar Gran Hotel & Spa in Sa Coma. It’s a week-long festival showcasing the best names in contemporary Smooth Jazz, Funk and Soul. But the trip isn’t only about the music. I’ve had numerous opportunities to tour the island to experience the uniquely diverse attractions and village experiences. Please enjoy this Mallorca, Spain photo gallery. I hope it inspires you to travel to this beautiful island.

Tourist Sites in Majorca, Spain
You should definitely spend a few days exploring the capital, Palma to see their historical, Cathedral of Santa Maria of Palma, and the royal La Almudiana Palace, which is right next door. Further afield you find the uniquely round, Castell de Bellver, a curious Gothic structure, which is now a museum.
There are so many pristine beaches to discover, and no trip to Mallorca would be complete without taking a boat tour around the island. Take time to visit the smaller villages on the island. There’s Petra, the birthplace of Father Junipero Serra; Son Servera, where you’ll witness the ‘Unfinished Church’, and lively Soller. In Soller, there’s an historic train you can take down to the port of Soller that is well worth the few dollars. Then dine on some lovely seafood port side.
There are numerous natural caves to explore, like the Caves of Drach in Porto Cristo and the Caves of Arta. You can book book tickets to the Caves of Drach and other attractions online, which will save you time and money. These are spectacular natural wonders you really must see. If wine is your passion, Mallorca has an abundance of vineyards, wineries and places where you can sample the local products. A good one to try out is the Jose L. Ferrer Cellar and Bodega.
