Palma Old Town has become the area in which everyone wants to live, is more requested than ever!!
We can also see in the fact that more than a dozen requests for new boutique hotels in old buildings have already been presented to the commission of the old town of Palma. All this is changing especially the area around the Cathedral, the neighborhood of Sa Calatrava – Dalt Murada. Palma is in this moment, the coolest european city
This is, without a doubt, a must-see for all those who like architecture, as it gathers some of the most impressive buildings in the city. With countless palaces, inside “patios” and centuries of history, a simple walk through this neighborhood will show you one of the most beautiful faces of Palma Old Town.
Mallorca is a land where Jews, Christians and Muslims have passed. Three different ways of living, three ways of understanding art and three styles of architecture and gastronomy that left their mark on Palma. The district of Sa Calatrava – Dalt Murada is the old Jewish district of Palma. A place formed by streets that accommodate unique buildings and places that are well worth a photo. It is one of the most beautiful and well-kept neighborhoods in the city.
The neighborhood is delimited by the Montesión area, Sindicato and Foners streets and the port area of Palma. In its route we find magical places like the Gothic temple of Sant Francesc, the heart of the Jewish quarter, the baroque church of Montsión or the Museum of Mallorca.
In the area there are small and minimalist shops but with exclusive products, as well as small taverns in which to take a good Mallorcan wine with a coca of vegetable passing through traditional bakeries in which to buy from brown bread to coca of vegetable or the well-known “llonguets”. Through the neighboring Plaza del Coll you can access the street of Argenteria or the Silverware, where you can admire the many shops that display in their jewelry windows or the rich traditional Mallorcan keyboards, in an environment that has not lost air Of the Jewish market. At the end of the street, the monumental church of Santa Eulàlia plays a major part in the history of Palma, as it was the first parish in the city after the Christian conquest.
The majestic palaces of the area have been renovated over the past few years and have been converted into modern luxury apartments with all comforts. Those in the first line of the sea district enjoy fantastic sea views, as well as the penthouses that have terraces and also enjoy open or partial views of the sea.
It is a highly valued and demanded area. The area of Passeig d’Alt de la Murada is valued at up to 15,000 euros per m² in promotions of the old town. In specific cases you can reach 20,000 euros for each meter of an attic. Similar amount is paid for single-family homes located in the upper area of the city Urb Son Vida.
Living in the medieval city with its beautiful squares, cafes and bars, despite everything, offers a unique atmosphere and an environment that is well worth its price!!
