Strolling Palma de Mallorca street after street without having focus on all the shops, may be tiring if you do not look up and see all the beautiful houses and facades around avenues, plazas and corners.
Below the castle and La Seu the entrance to the city starts with S´Hort del Rei. After Passeig des Born and Plaza J. Carlos I, you find the entrance to La Rambla guarded by statues.The shopping street Jaume III (going west from plaza J.Carlos I ) has these spectacular arcades that give you a covered walk along the shops on both sides protected from the heavy trafic.
The streets closer to Plaza Major have many interesting buildings from the Art Nouveau / Jugend style period. Strolling in the Old city gives you a much more narrow view and the photo below is from the walls outside the Arab Baths.
Before the circle once more is closed, you have the possibility to use your tele lenses and catch a view of the more "modern" style buildings at Passeig Maritim, and beyond that the Castello del Bellver.
