Plaza España is the location of Palma’s main bus and train terminal called Estación Intermodal. Numerous TIB buses connect Palma with towns across the island; the train links the capital to Inca, Sa Pobla and Manacor; and the Metro takes passengers to Marratxí and the University of the Balearic Islands. The famous old train to Sóller sets off from here, too. Virtually all the urban EMT bus routes pass through Plaza España.

Behind the station is the city park, Parque de las Estaciones, which offers city-dwellers a landscaped lawn, a children’s play park and paved walkway. It’s a convenient spot for a picnic during an exploration of the city or shopping trip. The actual Plaza España square, across the road from the station, is a popular meeting point. There are bustling restaurants with open air terraces and an impressive sculpture of King Jaume I.
Plaza España is joined to Avenida Alexandre Roselló, which is the address of Spain’s largest department store, El Corte Inglés, and other global brands. It’s also close to the fresh food market, Mercat de l’Olivar, and is in walking distance of the atmospheric streets of La Rambla and Palma’s Old Town. During some festivities, and at Christmas, Plaza España fills with stalls selling gifts.
