We decided after a couple of days of relaxation that we would trust the local transport systems and take a trip into Majorca’s capital Palma. After much mission trying to get a bus, we took a cab and headed off.
Palma as I saw is the capital of Majorca, but it is also capital of all of the Balearic Islands. Palma was founded as a Roman camp. The turbulent history of the city saw it the subject of several Vandal sackings during the fall of the Roman Empire, then reconquered by the Byzantine, then colonised by the Moors, and finally established by James I of Aragon.
We initially planned just to visit the aquarium (more on this later), but we decided to jump onto a tour bus and have a spin round. A lot of the pictures on this report were taken on the top of a bus, but as I mentioned in the previous post, I made an effort to enjoy things for myself rather than through the screen on the camera, so a lot of shots are just taken.
After this we jumped on the tour bus and started our jaunt around Palma, the tour took around an hour. I did take a fair few photo’s, but I decided to keep it brief to only the ones that jump out and may interest people…. so… All Aboard!
Thanks for looking, keep an eye out for more posts from Majorca.
