Being honest, I was quite skeptical about booking a vacation to Majorca, which is normally known as Mallorca. In reality, the only reason I actually agreed for a vacation in Majorca was my love for architecture and beaches. Do you know that the beaches in Mallorca are not only inexpensive but also quite warm than other European beaches? And the fun part is that one Majorca is so much more than the big resorts, it’s an island filled with jaw-dropping architecture breath-taking beaches, mouth-watering food, spectacular sunsets and historical cultural parks.
Frankly, I have only heard about Majorca as being a resort destination, but trust me, it’s a lot more than that. Plus, traveling to Majorca is quite simple and various travel agencies plan and incredible tours. After visiting Majorca I can say it’s one of those destinations that offers something for everyone either you are looking from breathtaking views of beaches to rugged mountain hiking, from lip-smacking food to picturesque historical villages.
I planned my vacation with Autentica Mallorca, which in fact was the best decision. They were well-planned with everything, no delays, rather a smooth yet exciting ride to exploring Majorca. As soon as we landed at the Palma de Mallorca Airport, their exceptional service begins by being timely available outside the airport. After settling at the hotel, we sat in our bus and went straight towards Arta. Arta is a picturesque town just a few kilometers inland from the north-east coast of Majorca, tucked within a valley is surrounded by rocky mountains of the Llevant Natural Park.
Arta has a famous weekly market, most striking architecture from steep narrow roads that start at the foot of the hill, Regional Museum at Plaza del conquistador, medieval fortress walls of pilgrimage church of Sant Salvador, spectacular thousands-year old caves, stunning beaches of Cala Ratjada resort, best-preserved prehistoric Ses Païsses and numerous world-famous historical celebrations and festivals. In short, Arta is a must-visit town in Majorca.
After discovering and exploring the legendary Arta region, we visited Santa Margalida, which has a magnificent and exquisite Aloe Vera Farm. The field trip was quite informative as it increased my knowledge regarding the benefits and high usage of aloe vera in the makeup. The staff is well-educated and happy to share their knowledge, the only place where you can find purest Aloe Vera gel in Majorca is in Santa Margalida.
Day two was spent in exploring the Palma City, the capital and largest city in Majorca. Undeniably, it has a rich historical background having a gothic architectural building, legendary caves of Genova and the famous Parc del Mar fountain. in short, it’s a hidden gem with a route to history.
If you like me, are not into resorts rather fancy historical architecture and cultural aspects of a city, then, you my friend need to visit Majorca. The largest of the idyllic Balearic Island, Majorca is huge and enough to stir your soul with excitement.
