The Neighbourhood of Santa Catalina

The neighbourhood of Santa Catalina in Palma de Mallorca is defined by a number of landmark buildings. The Molins de Es Jonquet, the Teatre Mar i Terra, the Hostal Cuba and the splendid Església Parroquia Inmaculada Concepción San Magín, the parish church of the district (see photo above), are all exceptional. In the old days, Santa Catalina used to be a district of fishermen and flour mills but nowadays, the area has a bohemian and alternative feel to it and its picturesque streets are lined with restaurants and bars popular with Spanish and foreign yuppies. The Mercat de Santa Catalina is one of Palma’s three great indoor markets.

The Hostal Cuba dates from 1904 and is currently being restored. The hostal will convert into a Four Star hotel with 16 rooms and is almost ready to re-open its doors under new management. The Teatre Mar i Terra, dating from 1898, is also undergoing extensive work with the aim to restore its Modernism elements.
