I just Love it!
I can't remember the first time I went to Santa Catalina - Es Jonquet. But it is a district of Palma that is so different from the rest of the old town. And I immediately liked it very much.
The buildings are rather low, everything takes place around the Mercat (the market hall). And there is quite a lot going on.
In the evening, it's a hustle and bustle. All the restaurants are open. At least on weekends, people crowd through the streets, there is a hustle and bustle, until the officially decreed night's rest sets in relatively abruptly and Santa Catalina sinks into sleep until 9 / 10 in the morning.
We have bought a townhouse with sea views in Es Jonquet. The building application has been approved and we can start the conversion. More about this soon in our newsletter.

The strange sea creatures in the picture above are called barnacles and you can get them very fresh at the Mercat de l'Olivar market hall in Palma.
The Restaurante Xoriguer in Palma is a revelation! Best in winter. And best not if you want to make a business meeting afterwards ...
