After eating, the tourist can go to Born promenade and Jaume II Avenue area, where he will see and visit the most exclusive shops of Palma. Not so far from there, is La Lonja, an extraordinary building, one of the most significant civil gothic buildings of Mallorca. Then can be interesting walking up to Museu des Baluard, the Modern and Contemporary Art of Palma. Building and museum are notable; it’s worth coming in and contemplates how a modern building has adapted to a 17th bastion. An alternative option is to visit the Castell de Bellver, on a hillside. One of the most extraordinary gothic castles in Europe is one of the four-round shape gothic castles in Europe. It’s quite interesting to visit it because the architecture, the history museum and above all the views, those are completely amazing!
