Palma on a Sunday?

Our cruise stops in Palma for one day only, a Sunday. Will any of the shops or restaurants be open? What about the mall across from port? We also want to see the Cathedral. Will we be able to enter after Mass is over, say around noon time? Thanks in advance for any replies.

I don't know if it's a seasonal thing or not, but when we were in Palma (early June 2010) on a Sunday, it was almost completely dead. That being said, all the souvenir shops near the Cathedral were open, which leads me to believe the Cathedral itself is probably open. Lots of more touristy restaurants near Calle Apuntadores and right after Passeig des Born were open. Forn des Teatre was also open.

We were in Palma over Easter and most of the shops were closed, so I think on a Sunday they will be closed too apart from the Tourist shops. In saying that we had a lovely day, most of the restaurants and cafe bars are open.

Unfortunately Porto Pi Shopping Centre opposite the cruise terminal is closed on Sundays, it's open every other day from 10am to 10pm.

You are fine with the bars and restaurants, but you will find most of the shops closed on a Sunday.

As a general rule, all shops close in Spain on Sundays. You will find cafes and restaurants open, though, as Spanish families like to go out together on Sundays.

The Cathedral is open of course on Sunday, for worship and services etc, free of charges, so you may be able to go in when there is no official service going on.
