Hello again, Palma

After 7 weeks of the strictest lockdown in Europe, we were finally able to go outside for exercise and fresh air. I have never seen that many people out before 7am. This first walk was strange but felt so good. It screamed freedom!

It was blissful to watch the sun rising while listening to the sounds of the waves, along with people chatter and laughter.

Oh, I missed that walk!

I was so happy to finally be able to see our beautiful Cathedral again. La Seu is definitely my favourite spot. Seeing the flowers around the Cathedral made me realise how much we’ve missed while being locked inside. Spring has happened and we didn’t get a chance to enjoy it.

It was surreal to see the usually busy plazas and streets completely empty!

My mind was blown by seeing how much the trees have grown during the past weeks.

7 weeks have passed between these 2 photos.

What a strange feeling, to be able to enjoy the beauty of our city again. Never ever taking that for granted, that’s for sure!

I hope you are all enjoying your daily walks by the sea and city strolls!

See you soon for Palma Insta Tour!

Morning Stroll around Palma Cathedral

The best time of the day to go for a walk and watch the gorgeous cathedral is definitely at sunrise.

I can’t get enough of the sky turning all shades of orange and pink.

No one in the streets, just you and the beauty of nature.

Such a peaceful moment.

And soon after, it’s Golden Hour…

Oh, I miss it. I can’t wait to go on a morning walk again when all of this is over (aka COVID-19 lockdown).

What’s the thing you miss the most about having to stay at home?

Festa de la Llum at Palma Cathedral

Twice a year, on 02/02 and 11/11, the reflection of the Roseta is perfectly aligned with the one on the opposite wall, creating the illusion of the number 8. You can find more information about this phenomenon here.

The first time I went, a big cloud appeared just before it was supposed to happen so I couldn’t see it. This year I didn’t believe it would happen as the day was not a sunny one but, miracle, just for 30 minutes, the sun was shining and we were able to witness the light show.

It was truly magical, the reflection of the lights on the wall of the cathedral made me feel so happy and lucky to be able to see such beauty.

Doors of the Cathedral open at 7.30am and this happens between 8am and 9am.
