Palma itself is a fascinating city to explore, and as your self catering accommodation in Coll d’en Rabassa is so close to it, it would make sense to make the most of your time and spend at least a couple of days there, as it has more than one “must see”. The 14th century Beliver castle is one such place, as is La Seu, the magnificent cathedral built on an old mosque. If you have spare time one afternoon, take a wander through the narrow streets of the old quarter, and perhaps walk by some of the old mills. Inland, there are mountains to be climbed, vineyards to be visited, wine to be tasted and much more besides.
Palma’s mild winter and warm summers make it a destination that can be visited at almost any time of year. Certainly, the summer months are the busiest with tourists, with July and August seeing regular daytime highs of 30 degrees Celsius. It is worth remembering that if you wish to book a holiday rental villa in Coll d’en Rabassa at this time of year, you should do so well in advance. The winter months see daytime temperatures at around 12 or 13 degrees, and at night it can drop to 10 degrees. Whilst this may not make it sunbathing weather, there will certainly be less tourists at this time of year.
