No-one has ever claimed that the pleasures of ice cream were invented on the island of Mallorca. But ice-making and subsequently, the making of ice-creams have been a Mallorcan tradition for well over 300 years.
With the beginning of Summer the availability of ice creams is everpresent. In Palma de Mallorca, for instance, the friendly people of Heladería Can Miquel will offer you a choice of 24 different chocolate ice creams, out of a total of more than 90 ice cream varieties. Can Miquel is situated in Avinguda Jaume III, between C&A and El Corte Inglés. Try the Rosa de Alejandría variety for a sense of paradise without having to go to heaven first.
