Palma would do well to look across the water at how Barcelona works and why. | CCL
Barcelona is packed with tourists from all over the world, from the UK to the United States and Asia, so why is not Palma? I have never known Barcelona as well as Madrid but some 10 days ago, heading for the Pyrenees and some skiing, I spent a night and the best part of a day in Barcelona. My travel companion is not one for sitting around so off we went and in the space of about four hours managed to take in most of the sites in the city centre from our hotel just off Plaza Cataluña.
