Parc de la Mar refers to the public space located at the foot of the medieval walls in front of La Seu Cathedral. The serene salt water lake was created in the 1970’s to mirror the sea which formerly washed up to the walls but was pushed back to create the Llevant motorway. The scenic park has become one of the most emblematic zones in the city and is the chosen setting for key annual fiestas and events including Sant Joan, Fiesta Flexas, Beer Palma and Open Air Cinema.
Cycling and Segway tours always include a stop here. Admire the Cathedral from across the water and enjoy a drink on the terrace of one of the cafés or bars located near-by. For beautiful views overlooking the palm-tree dotted park and Mediterranean sea beyond, walk along the old wall, Passeig Dalt Murada. You’ll find grassy areas and a children’s playground at the furthest point.
