Palma City Council has buckled under pressure from tour operators and tourists who have been increasing the pressure on the local authority to install public toilets in the city centre and key tourist areas.

Yesterday, the council announced that this summer, there will be six free public toilets in the city centre and admitted that it has been under mounting pressure from the tour firms and visitors for many years to sort the problem of a lack of public toilets out. “It's a vital service which we need to be providing and the cost is manageable,” a city council source said.
The toilets will be in the Parc de la Mar, Plaza de España and the calles Conquistador and San Miguel, la Cuesta de Santo Domingo and the Paseo Mallorca.

They will be vandalism-proof and their upkeep and maintenance will be taken care of by a private company.
