The Paseo del Born, and its neighbouring streets in Palma de Mallorca, offer a large selection of stylish shops and bars.
This boulevard was built at the beginning of the 19th century by architect Isidro González Vázquez, on what was the Riera torrent bed.
We can find national and international brands along with unique, sophisticated small boutiques and local businesses. In the traditional bars we can enjoy tasty tapas, sandwiches or Majorcan cooking. This area, right in the heart of Palma, is a great place for lovers of great style and hedonism, those desirous of enjoying exquisite settings, surrounded by beautiful traditional Majorcan buildings.
It is very pleasant to walk around the pretty winding streets of the old town (streets like Paraires, Sant Feliu, d’Orfila, Can Verí and Sant Nicolau, as well as the, Frederic Chopin square). Some of the businesses here are set out in unique premises, such as the art gallery, set in the old Sant Feliu church, or the artist workshops located in old remodelled garages.
Back on the Paseo del Born we can admire the Casal Solleric, presently home to an exhibition centre.
