In Calatrava, you live very central in the Old Town of Palma in genuine medieval surroundings, close to the sea and the city beach Ca'n Pere Antoni.
On cobbled stone streets you can walk through the area where history is present everywhere you go.
Wide vaults over the entrances of the buildings are very common to see, as in days past, people used to ride (took out with) horse carriages through the entrance and keep the horses and the carts parked in the patio. Nowadays the stables are rebuilt into garages or green patios where you can have dinner al fresco.
The first floor is called the Planta Noble, as that is where the family lived. The servant lived on the second floor and upstairs, in the attic, was where they held small animals like rabbits and hens.
In Calatrava you can find a couple of cosy cafés and restaurants. You will also find web agencies, vegan shops and art galleries.
Walking along, you will suddenly discover that you are no longer on the narrow small streets, but instead on the old historical city wall that goes in front of the gothic Cathedral and all you will see is the blue sky and the sea. The park and lake in front is called Parc de mar which offers a café with views of the Cathedral and the water.
Calatrava is a truly historical and well kept area with a tranquil atmosphere and a perfect location between the centre of Palma and the beach.
