The port city of Palma, an MSC Mediterranean Cruises destination, lies on the south coast of Mallorca. Founded in 124 B.C., Palma is celebrated for its medieval streets, jaw-dropping architecture, and ancient fortified walls. See buildings such as the Cathedral of Santa Maria which features designs by Gaudí and one of the world’s largest stained-glass windows, or the Gothic Bellver castle with its circular centre and eye-catching towers.

 
MSC Cruises excursions offer plenty of exciting things to see including:
 
• The Cathedral of La Seu
• Sóller and Vintage Train Ride
• Dragon’s Caves 
 
Explore the wonders of Palma de Mallorca on an unforgettable MSC Cruises excursion. Ride a bike or go on foot to see landmark sights across the city. Take in Palma’s most remarkable building: the 14th-century La Seu. Positioned atop the former citadel, this Gothic cathedral was constructed almost 400 years ago. Spanish traditions are kept alive at Balearic Coliseum in Plaza de Toros, a historical arena that still hosts bullfights. Or take a trip to La Almudaina, the glorious summer residence of the Spanish Royal Family.
 
Visit superb Sóller on an MSC Cruises excursion, a coastal town with a backdrop of mountains. The town houses awe-inspiring architecture such as the Banco de Sóller, designed by Juan Rubió, a pupil of Gaudí. Next, catch a ride on the early-20th-century Ferrocarril de Sóller electric train where you’ll take picture-postcard photos of the spectacular scenery. Journey through magical hills, glimpsing orange groves and viaducts, before entering the tunnels the Serra de Tramuntana mountains.
 
If you love dramatic landscapes, don’t miss an MSC Cruises excursion to the Dragon Caves, Mallorca’s mysterious underground world. Forged from years of coastal erosion, this geological system boasts a number of highlights including four great chambers, the Baths of Diana, stalactites and stalagmites, and the impressive Lake Martel. Immerse yourself in this magnificent spectacle and listen to an amazing concert staged on small boats. Back aboveground, finish your cruise with a visit to the glimmering Pearl Factory, a real treat for jewellery lovers!

    Spain

    Love at first sight
    Love at first sight

    If you’re visiting Spain for the first time, be warned: this is a country that fast becomes an addiction. You might intend to come just for a cruise holiday, a walking tour or a city break, but before you know it you’ll find yourself hooked by something quite different – the celebration of some local fiesta, perhaps, or the otherworldly architecture of Barcelona.

    Even in the most over-touristic Mediterranean resorts of the Costa del Sol, you’ll be able to find an authentic bar or restaurant where the locals eat, and a village not far away where an age-old bullfighting tradition owes nothing to tourism. 


    A holiday to Spain can also show you the large cities of the north like Barcelona, which have reinvented themselves as essential cultural destinations (and don’t all close down for hours for a kip every afternoon). 


    And when the world now looks to Spain for culinary inspiration – the country has some of the most acclaimed chefs and innovative restaurants in the world – it’s clear that things have changed. Spain, despite the current economic uncertainty, sees itself very differently from a generation ago. 

    So should you – prepare to be surprised.
