The Palma de Mallorca Christmas Train is one of the most beloved attractions during the holiday season, especially for children. This train travels through the city streets, offering residents and visitors the opportunity to enjoy festive views from a unique perspective.

The tour usually starts in the city center, where the streets are illuminated with thousands of lights. Among other areas to visit, we recommend Plaza Mayor, Calle San Miguel and La Rambla, Paseo del Borne, and the Cathedral of Mallorca. You can finish the tour at the port of Palma, where you can enjoy views of the sea and illuminated yachts.
Delivering letters to the Three Wise Men is a deeply rooted tradition in Spain, and Mallorca is no exception. This event is celebrated annually and is an opportunity for children to participate in an important cultural custom.
