The city of Palma is Majorca’s main shopping centre. It has rapidly developed many of the finest boutiques and shopping malls in the last decade and competes well with many of the Spanish mainland shopping cities.
Palma offers endless shopping opportunities. Passeig des Born is one of the main shopping streets that is lined with department stores, shops and boutiques. Exploring the pedestrian streets in Palma will uncover numerous other shopping opportunities.
The main shopping areas are Palma Avinguda Jaume III and the Passeig des Born for up-market boutiques and the pedestrian streets around Placa Major for small specialist shops such as Jewellery and fashion.
There is also a shopping center under Placa Major at the main square which can be found north of Jaume II. Here, shops mostly specialise in leather goods and unique souvenirs.
Leather and Shoes Shops
In recent decades, leather-manufacturing businesses on the Balearics have become internationally famous. This industry is well known for its high quality and innovative designs. There are plenty of specialised shops on the island that offer these products. One can also get the chance to visit the headquarters of the manufacturing companies and get the opportunity to explore the handicraft tradition of the Island.
This handicraft process dates back to the 2nd century BC and the manufacturing of glass products is very common. Glass factories provide glass products as well as handicraft-manufactured products in several shops in the city. Vidrierias Gordiola, located in Carrer de la Victoria 2 is a good shop for glassware products.
