Palma de Mallorca, City Sights
Palma is the capital of the Balearic Islands and lies on the southeastern coast of Palma de Mallorca Island. A wealth of architectural highlights awaits you. Board your coach and travel to your first stop at the circle-shaped 14th century Bellver Castle, one of the world’s very few rounded castles and the only one of its type in Europe. Built in military-influenced Gothic style, it lies atop a hill affording expansive panoramic views over the city and surrounding countryside.  You will travel on to the handsome 13th century La Seu Cathedral, which presides over the city and is one of Europe’s finest examples of pure ecclesiastic Gothic architecture. After exploring the Cathedral’s interior you will view the exterior of the adjacent Almudaina Palace. This austere palace was originally an Arab fortress and later the palace of Majorcan kings. Before returning to the yacht you will stop to see the unique style and architectural engineering of the city’s famous bullring.

Please note: Comfortable shoes with rubber soles are recommended. There are approximately 100 steps from the coach parking area to the La Seu Cathedral. Spanish law requires that motor coach guest’s wear their seat belts at all times while in vehicles that are so equipped. On Sundays and holidays the Cathedral is not open to visitors. The history of the Cathedral will be given outside. When visiting the Cathedral, knees and shoulders must be covered. Bellver Castle is closed on Mondays and the visit will be from the outside only.

Palma de Mallorca, Valldemosa & Chopin
A short motor coach drive past olive trees and local vegetation brings you to the quaint 14th century village of Valldemossa, located at the foot of the Northern Mountain Range. Its former royal residence, La Cartuja, is the first stop on your tour. The residence became a Carthusian monastery in the Middle Ages and your guide will show you the chapel, a pharmacy,and the monks’ library. Valldemossa’s shining moment was in 1838, when George Sand and Frederic Chopin came to live at the monastery. Their stay here is well documented and a collection of their furniture remains. George Sand later wrote a book about their time here, entitled “A Winter in Majorca.”  During free time, you will have the perfect opportunity to taste the typical sweets from Valldemossa called Coca de Patata, an individual sweet cake made with potatoes. The drive back to the ship will give you the opportunity to view the impressive cliffs to the north.

Mahon, Hiking in Menorca
Hiking is perhaps the perfect way to discover the beauty of the island of Menorca—a  UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. With an intensely interesting history carved into the landscape throughout the ages, Menorca offers virtually endless possibilities for trekking and the characteristics of the landscape are so varied that every walker will find a route practically made to measure. The north coast offers some of the most stunning hiking trails on the island. You’ll take the route that connects Cala Pregonda with Cap de Cavalleria, heading first in the direction of Fornells and meeting the trailhead at the Caballería beaches. Your first stop will be at Cala Mica, where a narrow beach offers the first chance to enjoy the crystalline waters of Menorca. From there your walk continues to Binimel-là Beach. Here, fine and coarse sands are deposited together by the winter tramontana winds, but in summer the sea is very calm and the water clear and fresh. Another 90 minutes of walking brings you to Cala Pregonda’s coastal scenery of rocky outcroppings and picture postcard crescent of golden sand. There’s time to relax here and enjoy a swim before you return to the ship in Mahon.

Please note: Bring your camera, your swim suit and towel and wear comfortable shoes.
