About Palma

Palma is also often referred to as Palma de Mallorca, and began its life as a Roman settlement in around 123BC.

The city is now one of the most popular tourist destinations in all of Spain, seeing thousands of visitors flock to the beachfront, hotels and restaurants every year, particularly in the summer months.

The best time to visit the city if you’re looking for high temperatures is over the summer between June and September, but you’ll still get relatively warm and dry weather if you visit in the shoulder season for tourism outside of this period.
