Raixa

The estate of Raixa is an historic and beautiful estate located at the base of the Serra de Tramuntana centered around an Italian-style castle.

The gardens that surround it, its monumental staircase, and the panoramic views make it an essential place to visit

Greek Temple at Raixa

The villa and gardens of Raixa, along with its magnificent gardens, was initially an 16th Centuryt Moorish farm. At the turn of the 18th century, Cardinal Despuig, one of the key figures in the Enlightenment, built the grand estate and gardens which incorporate elements of Italian palazzo as well as Greek temples and Asian-influenced structures

The Ramparts

Walking Palma’s medieval ramparts provides great views of sea, Parc del a Mer and the Cathedral. The enormous walls which date back to the Roman era are set high so they provide many beautiful vistas. Their colors and angular geometry provide for both great instagram opportunities and well as seemingly abstract photography.

From the ramparts is it easy to explore Old Town, the Cathedral, the Port and the coast line. Early morning provides tranquility and beautiful lighting for photos. Afternoons and evening provide hustle and bustle as some much life takes place in all of the adjoining areas.

SUMMUM PRIME BOUTIQUE HOTEL

In the heart of Palma, the Summum Prime Boutique Hotel is born.  Its privileged location in the social center of the Balearic capital gives it the prominence of a dazzling establishment, the result of the reconstruction of one of the most welcoming historical buildings in the city: the Ca’n Berga-Ladaria Palace .

The building was built in the fifteenth century and has been modified over the years to acquire a stately and palatial character. It highlights the exclusive selection of pieces of furniture, resulting in exquisite decoration. A bright and daring staging that integrates very diverse products that are given relevance through an original, creative and luxurious decoration , maintaining the typical characteristics of the buildings of the old town of Palma . Its latest reform has been led by the prestigious interior designer Elvira Blanco , in charge of internationally renowned hotels

TIPIC Fornalutx

In the heart of Fornalutx. It’s called TIPIC for “typical.” But I see it as unique and special. A store that reflects the delightful character, joyous presence, and exceptional taste of its proprietress, Lucia.

Each and every item looks carefully crafted, beautiful and special. However, TIPIC is a comfortable store. A place where you can take your time to discover.

If you need a pair of comfortable – but smart looking – walking shoes… or a hat to protect your head from the sun… or something fun and beautiful to wear… or a book to inspire your journey… or a gift for the very special someone in your life… You will find it amidst the joy of discovery at TIPIC Fornalutx
