Why Palma is the perfect winter get-away?

With Winter comes cold, which means we are up to long and warm evenings by the chimney, reading interesting books, having a glass of wine or enjoying a lovely hot chocolate while catching up on our favourite series. But today we are here to tell you why Palma could be the perfect winter get-away and why you will want to leave your comfy sofa behind to enjoy a perfect winter break!

Palma de Mallorca in Winter

 

We cannot say that it doesn’t get cold on the Balearic Islands, but what we have to say about Palma comes really close. If there is one thing that can win you over once you’ve been in Palma in winter is that the sun is always shining. We don’t know why, we don’t know how, but winter in Palma offers you some of the most beautiful days of the year. The temperatures do drop, but even after a rainy day or a storm, Palma manages to get the sun shining only a couple hours after.

 

 

But there is more to Palma than just a sunny promise. Over the past decade Palma has become a highly entertaining city. When the summer-season is over and the beaches are more of a spectacular scenario to take a walk than a large pool, Palma continues to be a lively city with tons of musical, cultural and gastronomic events taking place.

 

 

In winter, Palma hosts some of the most stunning classical musical festivals, new art exhibitions in its museums and countless art galleries and becomes the favourite spot for foodies all over Europe with cool tapas festivals, competitions and more. One thing is for sure: there will never be a dull moment when visiting Palma in the winter months.

 

In addition to cold, but sunny days and a comprehensive cultural agenda, during the holidays, Palma also transforms into a festive city, hosting beautiful Christmas markets and covering the streets with lights. All over the city you will be able to enjoy the traditional markets, where the Majorcan culture and tradition play a fundamental role.

 

 

Last, but not least, Palma is the perfect winter get-away because all of us at BO Hotel will be pleased to have you staying at our luxury boutique hotel in the city centre. With highly comfortable beds, beautiful views of the cathedral, a new and spectacular signature breakfast, high-end Italian gastronomy at Ritzi Palma and a friendly service waiting for you, we can assure you will have a spectacular winter break!

Christmas in Palma and in BO Hotel

Christmas is just around the corner and we couldn’t be more excited. At BO Hotel we are fond of the festivities in general and Christmas is definitely our favourite festivity. It’s not only the lovely atmosphere at our hotel that makes us feel the unique Christmas-feeling, but also the beautiful city of Palma, which never seizes to surprise us during these dates.

Christmas in Palma

 

At the end of November the traditional ‘turn-on of the Christmas lights’ takes place 2 minutes away from BO Hotel, at Plaza de la Reina and that magical moment the whole city lights up with beautiful Christmas lights that make us remember all the lovely things Christmas is actually about.

 

 

Once the lights are on all over Palma, the city keeps getting more and more festive. In the centre traditional Christmas markets take over the most important streets, such as ‘Ramblas’ and ‘Plaza Mayor’. A big amount of little stalls filled with not only Christmas decoration, but also Majorcan pastries and artisan products. In addition to Christmas markets, fairs filled with attractions for children also take the streets adding the laughter of the little ones to the festive ambiance.

 

During the holidays, many important concerts take place in the capital city of the Balearic Islands too, such as the Christmas concert in Teatre Principal, located a 7-minute walk away from BO Hotel.

 

 

At BO Hotel we haver our very own Christmas celebration prepared for guests and visitors who are searching for a place to have a lovely Christmas lunch or dinner. On the 24th, 25th and 26th of December Ritzi Palma, the authentic Italian restaurant located in the ground floor of BO Hotel in the lively neighborhood of La Lonja, offers a superb Christmas menu elaborated with ingredients of the highest quality. At our restaurant we offer you a warm welcome, as we are looking forward to spending Christmas together.

 

 

And if you’re around Palma on Christmas, there is a highlight you shouldn’t miss: the ‘Gallo’ mass at the cathedral. Taking place on the 24th at midnight, this mass is the most important Christian celebration of the year and is as fascinating for Christians as for non-Christians.

 

If you would like to book your Christmas lunch or dinner at Ritzi Palma, please contact us at ritzipalma@bohotel.com or call us at +34 971 712 738. We will be delighted to host a spectacular Christmas lunch or dinner in Palma’s old town for you!
