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 well established the feng shui of the place is defined well.
Palma’s old town is full of ancient passages, historic 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 historic 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 for 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 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.
