Majorca Shopping

In Palma, the capital of Majorca, you will find a number of chain stores and designer shops. If you venture down the numerous back streets you will find a lot of local shops and boutiques. Wandering down the smaller streets you will be able to shop and take in the beautiful sights and architecture of Palma. One of the oldest areas in Palma is the Passeig per l’Artesania where you will find a lot of traditional Majorcan goods such as glass, pearls and leather. Outside of Palma there are many pottery shops as ceramics has been a popular craft in Majorca for centuries. Portol is a great place to pick up some traditional Majorcan ceramics. Glass blowing is also a traditional Majorcan craft and there are still many glass factories on the island to visit.
