Welcome to Gènova
Most visitors to Palma come up here, around 1km north of Cala Major, to visit the closest caves to the capital, the Coves de Gènova. Aside from views, and some good Mallorcan restaurants, there probably isn't much else to tempt travellers. If you have wheels, follow the signs to Na Burguesa off the main road from the centre of Gènova (a short way north of the Coves turn-off). About 1.5km of winding, poor road takes you past the walled-in pleasure domes of the rich to reach a rather ugly monument to the Virgin Mary, from where you have sweeping views over the city (this is about the only way to look down on the Castell de Bellver) and bay.
