MallorcaAfter you arrive on Palma de Mallorca on Azamara’s Balearic Islands and Italy voyage, you can visit one of the island’s most fascinating natural sights on the Drach Caves excursion. They’re located near Porto Cristo, a fishing village on a sheltered bay. Locals have known about these caves since the Middle Ages, though they were only extensively explored in the second half of the 19th century. Beneath the surface, these dramatically lit caverns reveal stalactites, stalagmites, and other geological formations as well as Lake Martel, one of the largest underground lakes in the world. After touring the caves, the excursion stops at a pearl workshop, where visitors will learn about one of the Balearic Islands’ traditional exports.
In the evening you’ll attend a concert of choral music in a spectacular setting on the AzAmazing Evening—Classical Concert at Le Seu Cathedral. The harborside cathedral was built atop an earlier mosque. Construction began in 1229 but wasn’t completed until almost 400 years later. This concert is an exclusive opportunity for Azamara guests who can visit Spain’s second-largest Gothic cathedral after it has closed to the public for the day.
