palma-de-mallorcaPALMA de Mallorca has been crowned the best place to live in the world by the Sunday Times.

The capital of Mallorca, in the Balearics, was voted first out of 50 destinations thanks to its ‘picturesque old towns’, ‘fancy shops’ and ‘slow-paced charm’.

The panel of judges described it as a ‘pocket-sized city that has it all, on a beautiful island’.

Palma de Mallorca has transformed itself from a fishing harbour to a modern, bustling destination for tourists and expats alike, thanks in part to the Spanish royal family’s annual holiday there in the Marivent palace.
