Why come to Palma de Mallorca
Palma is Mallorca’s vibrant capital with stylish architecture and bubbling with life. Half of the island’s population lives in Palma. Palma is sometimes compared to Barcelona with a 15-minute taxi ride from the airport, and it offers a perfect location for a mini holiday. Let’s explore the feng shui of Palma and how we can learn from it.
Wind – water of Palma de Mallorca
Palma is located in the south of the island overlooking the Mediterranean Sea with an enormous harbour which begins in front of the cathedral and borders the west. The sea promenade stretches all the way to the ferry port and cruise terminal, making it perfect for a stroll or cycle ride. The water element and the island air elements are well established the feng shui of the place is defined well.
Palma’s old town is full of ancient passages, historical monuments and splendid architecture – ready to be explored. Large parts of the old town have been beautifully restored, with 17th- and 18th-century places converted to homes and hotels. Developers have paid great attention to retaining historical details as well as making the home efficient, comfortable and elegant.
Unfortunately, Mallorca and the whole island have been exposed to many invasions and conquests throughout its history. From 902 to 1229, Palma was known to the Arabs as Medina Mayurqa and to Mallorcans thereafter simply as Ciutat (city). The city was actually named after the Roman city of Palmaria (founded around 120 BC), which still sits a couple of metres beneath the ground.
The two iconic streets of Passeig des Born and Las Ramblas were built in the 19th century on a dried-up river bed. The defensive city walls which surrounded the city were removed to create the ring road of Las Avingudas, and the waterfront highway and promenade Passeig Maritim were only reclaimed from the sea in the 1950s.
The energy flow of Palma
The harbour promenade has a great energy flow for pedestrians and is bike-friendly too. Palma is so small that you don’t need a car, and it’s very safe and convenient. The Marina’s Club de Mar has a wonderful vibe.
Olivera de Cort is a protected olive tree ( Olea europaea) which was brought to Palma from a country estate from Pollença, in the Serra de Tramuntana mountains, to be planted in the Plaça de Cort to symbolise peace and unmovable roots in the land. The Olivera de Cort is located in the middle of the square of the same name in Palma, just in front of the City Hall of the Mallorcan Capital. This olive tree is about 800 years old and has become symbolic of Palma and it’s favourite for tourists to take selfies in front of it. In 2003 it was added to the list of unique trees in the Balearic Islands.
Olivera de Cort is approximately seven meters high and the trunk circumference is 7.21 m to 1.30 m from the base.
Olive oil has long been considered sacred and is still used in many religious ceremonies. The olive tree and oil have also been used to symbolise wisdom, fertility, power and purity. The tree/wood element is also representative of wealth creation.
The olive tree (Olea europaea) has medicinal properties for heart health and cancer treatment.

Five Elements of Palma
Palma de Mallorca, the capital city of the island of Mallorca in Spain, beautifully embodies the principles of feng shui, a system of laws considered to govern spatial arrangement and orientation in relation to the flow of energy (Chi). The city’s configuration harmonizes with the five key elements of feng shui: water, wood, fire, earth, and metal, presenting a holistic interplay of energies that contribute to its charm and appeal.
Water, a significant element representing wealth and prosperity in feng shui, is a dominant feature of Palma. The city is located on the island’s southern coastline, kissed by the Mediterranean Sea. The bustling harbour, filled with yachts and boats, adds a dynamic water element to the city. This symbolizes constant movement and flow, enhancing the vibrancy and prosperity of Palma.
Wood is represented by the city’s lush green spaces, such as the Parc de la Mar and Bellver Forest. These green oases, particularly the latter with its native Mediterranean pine trees, offer a refreshing burst of life and growth in the heart of the city, which aligns with the wood element symbolizing growth and vitality in feng shui.
Fire, signifying transformation and passion in feng shui, is exemplified in the warm, inviting climate of Palma, and its rich cultural activities. The city’s vibrant festivals, such as Sant Sebastià in January, with bonfires and fireworks, physically and symbolically represent this fiery aspect.
The earth element, indicative of stability and nourishment in feng shui, is echoed in the historical buildings and the cobblestone streets of the Old Town. Landmarks such as the Gothic Palma Cathedral, the Royal Palace of La Almudaina, and the circular Bellver Castle root the city in a strong sense of history and groundedness.
Metal, the feng shui element symbolising precision and clarity, is represented in the city’s modern structures and the thriving industry. Elements of contemporary design and innovation are sprinkled across the city, such as Es Baluard Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, reflecting the forward-thinking, resilient spirit of Palma.
Overall, the feng shui of Palma de Mallorca provides a harmonious balance of the five elements, contributing to the city’s appeal as a lively yet serene Mediterranean haven.

Bagua of Palma de Mallorca
Feng shui uses metaphoric maps that can be used to trace or chart the energy movement in space. Looking at Palma, one has an impression that the map and the street layout looks like a brain extending itself out. In classical feng shui, south-east of a place is associated with wealth creation.
Famous people who live in Majorca
Many celebrities choose to live in Mallorca, such as Annie Lennox (Sóller), Catherine Zeta-Jones & Michael Douglas (between Valldemossa and Deià), Richard Branson, Rafael Nadal (Manacor), Brad Pitt (Puerto Andratx, also called Port d’Andratx) and Robert Lewandowski and his wife Anna Lewandowska, who’s astrocartography is very good for her in Majorca because her Sun line runs through Mallorca. They also live in Barcelona, where Robert plays for FC Barcelona. Anna Lewandowska’s Instagram account of Majorca is worth the look for ideas and places to visit when on the island.
