For me, Plaça Quadrado is one of the most beautiful places in Palma. If you don’t know the city that well, it’s a little hard to find in the maze of narrow streets – unless, of course, you’re staying at Central Palma, Palma’s wonderful youth hostel. And it’s a place full of life, where the people living in Sa Gerreria meet and celebrate on several occasions throughout the year.
Canamunt, the association of neighbors, is equally known for their great fiestas and their social initiatives. The parties also being a way of getting attention and funding for initiatives like Cap nin sense esmorzar – no kid without breakfast. Maybe it’s exactly this combination that creates the unique atmosphere. Along with the people, the music, food and drinks, singing and dancing in the sunshine.
Mercat de Sant Rescat is also a market for vintage clothes and accessories, books and DVDs, arts and crafts. La Molienda, one of my favorite coffee shops in Palma, had a coffee stall on the market, and while MonkeyDoo hit the right notes people spontaneously picked a partner to dance along the music. Made my day!
