These four neighbourhoods rank in the top twenty of Spain's most expensive, and their prices are at least three times the national average.

In Palma, other neighbourhoods where the price is above 6,000 euros are Son Espanyolet (6,303), La Bonanova (6,250) and Sant Agustí (6,158). A year-on-year comparison, Fotocasa notes, has seen notable price increases even in much less expensive neighbourhoods of Palma.

Other municipalities in Mallorca where prices are pretty high include Alcudia and Pollensa. In Platja d'Alcudia and Puerto Pollensa, prices are close to 4,000 euros per square metre.
