The day we caught the train

Palma de Mallorca
Mallorca has been on our radar for a while now.
It ticked all the boxes. A small island, easy to navigate and explore, lighthouses, a short flight from the UK, and it has a cosmopolitan city to use as a base. All this despite the reputation of the popular resorts that are the destination for a sizable chunk of those landing at the gargantuan Palma airport.
The city of Palma is an easy, short drive from the airport and in no time we were settling into our apartment in the shadow of the Santa Cruz church, on the edge of the old town.

To get our bearings we explored the Paseo Maritimo, the sea front promenade that runs the length of the Port of Palma. We started at the impressive Gothic landmark of the Santa María Cathedral, which is adjacent to the Royal Palace of Almudaina and explored the Terrazas de la Catedral de Palmantain which sits between the  cathedral and the sea. We then strolled along the Avinguda de Gabriel Roca, heading towards the lighthouse, naturally.
