How to spend a weekend in Palma


when should we go

PAlma is temperate most of the year, even during the coldest months when temperatures can drop in other parts of the island. As a year-round destination, most hotels stay open, unlike resorts. Out of season, particularly January through April and mid-October through December, there are hotel bargains to be had. The city’s special fiestas include the Parade of the Three Kings on January 5, Easter processions, the fire festival of Sant Juan in June and Nit de Art, the night of art, in September.
