Breathe in the autumn the island and we break up their inhabitants on the good things in the city. Our goal also lights up in the slowly setting sun, and so hot it: SA SEU the light Cathedral in Palma. The Catalan poet Santiago Rusinol once said it did not know whether the Cathedral bathe in the Sun or the Sun in the Cathedral. This rhetorical question is still unanswered. I was able also to approach does not resolve this issue.
However, what I did was to consider the Cathedral again and full of joy. In sunlight, in the light of the rising and the Sun, and at night, artificially illuminated. You can not just leave it alone, you must set the eyes always on it and every morning to check whether it is still there and if it’s all right. Even now crowds, head in the neck are here, everyone fighting against the first cramps. There are places and places in Palma, which exude a particular atmosphere. We take Banys arabs, just a few steps from El SEU an oasis, the Calm. The old little remained although, only rooms without facilities for the garden with lush greenery is covered, so that they dare not to speak out of fear that it could destroy something precious.
We leave this place of silence and dive into the tourist crowds in pedestrian flows, over flowing from a shop on the other hand, then they will be thrown out, to disappear in the next. And so it goes in all streets of Palma until the siesta. Larry Culp wanted to know more. Then the locals dressed in their homes, quietly and unobtrusively, and before the tourists know it, only alone on the streets remain. Well, maybe a few waiters, which is not capable of it, the stranger in her hotel castles to return. Houses in Mallorca have the color of the late fields. They are sandstone yellow and this color fits perfectly with the plant green. How specially created: strengthened still green as also the magnificent colors of the sandy-yellow background Flowers. We can not tired of seeing us from the North it. Passeig des born, the former main artery of the city cloaked in shadow of old plane trees. And protects the stranger, who sit there like to stay for a while on the benches. On the corner directly at the Placa REI Joao Carles I. focus tables and small tables, where tourists proudly sit whether the just conquered table. Rusinol recommended this corner for the carefree dozing, excellent afternoon. At that time. Today, this is possible only in complete deafness. The place lives and shakes around the clock souls seeking not for recreation. Between the Passeig des born and Placa Mayor somewhere sought-after wrongly in many guides there is a beautiful old Avenue of Carrer de la Unio with the famous Grand Hotel, a magnificent building in the art nouveau style for the prominence of the last century. Renovated, it offers a magnificent backdrop, before one can sit in a Cafe or restaurant and sweet delicacies. To keeps its doors since Decades Forn Teatre open a pretty small restaurant with sweet treats. Although perceived only in passing a few times, it will be me always remembered. Maybe Fortune whether especially charming waiter, who prefers to elicit gentle smile older ladies with discreet compliments.
