Yacht Harbour Palma de Mallorca

Palma's yacht harbour, seen from the Avinguda de Gabriel Roca. It's nice to see a number of smaller boats as well and not just big yachts!

El Pesquero, Palma de Mallorca

A bit down the Avinguda you will find the restaurant "El Pesquero" sitting next to the traditional fishnets of the fishers, to be repaired by them. As you can imagine, the "Pesquero" is a Tapas bar with a focus on fish, and it sports easily one of the best locations in Palma de Mallorca. Sitting on the patio, watching the harbour with the fisher boats coming in - a wonderful experience! (Daily 10am to 3pm)

Harbour, Palma de Mallorca

The traditional harbour of Palma. Despite all the glitziness of the celebrity yachts and the tourism, you can feel that Palma is still a lively city, made for and by "normal people". Which is good.

El Genio de Las Islas, by Luisa Granero

The "Genie of the Isles" ("El Genio de Las Islas") at the harbour faces the last sunbeams of the late afternoon. It features a feminine bronze statue in a somewhat strange position, a bit like a dancer. Her left hand carries a laurel crown, while her right hand carries a torch. The inscription on the stone pedestal reads: "The genie of the islands. To all those who with their initiative and work in the commerce, the industry and navigation have contributed to the progress and the prosperity of our islands. The Chamber of Commerce, celebrating its first century, 1886-1986". The inauguration was celebrted on the 28th August 1986. - The statue was created by Spanish artist Luisa Granero.

Avinguda de Gabriel Roca, Palma de Mallorca

The late afternoon casts long shadows across the Avinguda de Gabriel Roca in Palma de Mallorca. The traffic is slow, while the city prepares for a hot night, once more awaiting the party-goers of the night.
