Instagrammable spots in Palma for Christmas
One of the most elegant avenues in Palma, with luxury shops, Boutique hotels and nice cafes. Along its avenue, from Plaza de la Reina to Plaza Joan Carles I, an evening stroll is quite spectacular under the white glittering lights. This is probably why it is one of the most common photos of the Christmas lights that you will find on instagram.
This was also where it took place the swith-on of the Christmas lights with a great atmosphere and a video mapping on the Casa Solleric Facade. You can watch it on our facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/nofrills.excursions.mallorca/
A walk in the Ramblas is a very typical stroll during the Christmas period. Along this boulevard we find a craft market with local artisans, which can be a perfect opportunity to find some presents for this Christmas. There is a very lively and unique atmosphere, with the combination of the high trees, the stalls and the lights. It is the perfect place where to stop to find the best spot for an Instagram Photo involving light, people walking around and the shade of the trees.
Carrer de Oms:
It is always nice to stroll on Carrer Oms as there is a nice atmosphere and plenty of people around. It connects the Ramblas and the Plaza de España, and being a large wide street allows to see well the Christmas lights.
Plaza de España:
Due to its proximity to the train and bus station, this is a very busy place on this period, and there is a lovely atmosphere with a Christmas market and an ice skating arena in the Parc de ses Estacions (just north of Plaça España), that it’s open daily and into the evening. We agree that the other places we mentioned are better to see the Christmas lights, but still worth it to pass this square.
In Palma you will find different areas with Christmas stalls, some of them are found around Plaça Major , and they open daily from 10:00 until 21:00.
In Mallorca there is a tradition forthe ‘Betlems’ (Nativity scenes) all around the town centre and in many house, the main one located in front of Palma’s town hall at Plaça Cort. If you need to buy figures for your Betlem, at the Plaça Mayor you will find everything you need.
The town hall square looks fantastic for Christmas, and it is one of our favourite places. Make sure you dont miss to visit the Christmas Nativity inside the town hall. It is open every day from 10:00-20:00. You can check on this link for more Christmas Nativities in Palma and in Mallorca. Try to stand by the olive tree or in one of the corners for the best instagram photo with the lights and the town Hall building.
