The best theatres in Palma
Palma de Mallorca is a city that, in addition to sun, beaches and nature, also offers everyone a wide range of cultural activities and possibilities. Culture provides us with stories in which to immerse ourselves and forget the harsher side of reality.
The city, which is constantly growing, has madeits cultural fabric one of its best assets. Theatres, concert halls, independent cinemas, museums and exhibition halls have managed to create a vibrant cultural life that diversifies leisure in an increasingly lively city.
If you are a theatre lover, we at Es Príncep would like to recommend the best theatres in Palma. Each one of them has a different programme to satisfy all different cultural palates.
This is probably one of the most famous and well-known theatresin the city. Its history dates back to 1667 when, before becoming the Teatre Principal, it was the Casa de les Comedies. Over the centuries, the theatre has undergone several reforms with the aim of remodelling the theatre and adapting it to the new times without losing any of its charm.
In this theatre you can find avery varied and complete programme: from the best local, national and international plays to operas and concerts. You can't miss the opportunity to enjoy one of the shows that this theatre offers.
Teatre Municipal Mar i Terra
The building is an emblematic neoclassical theatre built next to the coast in 1898 as the headquarters of the Societat recreativa Mar i Terra. The Teatre Municipal Mar i Terra is a piece of the city's architectural heritage and offers the citizens the traditional uses of this space.
This theatre was refurbished by Palma City Council, and the refurbishment project has enabled the original stage of the theatre to be preserved with some modifications and a capacity for 140 people. In addition to offering stage performances, this city theatre also offers space for theatre and popular culture workshops.
Teatre del Mar
Another of the most famous theatres in Palma is the Teatre del Mar. For more than a quarter of a century it has been one of the most beloved and special theatres in Palma de Mallorca. As its name suggests, this theatre by the sea experienced the effervescence of amateur theatre during the 1940s and 1970s.
The Teatre del Mar is characterised by being a neighbourhood theatre managed by the Fundació Teatre del Mar and also by the association of citizens who, in addition to being lovers of the performing arts, play a very active role in its survival.
Built on the foundations of the Sala Rex Molinar, a playhouse with nearly fifty years of history, this theatre has become the heir to Palma's theatrical tradition. We recommend that you check out its programme and let yourself be seduced by its plays.
