Fodor's Review

Along Carrer Colom is the 17th-century Ajuntament. Stop in to see the collection of gigantes, the huge painted and costumed mannequins paraded through the streets during festivals, which are on display in the lobby. The olive tree on the right side of the square is one of Mallorca's so-called olivos milenarios—purported to be more than 1,000 years old. The adjacent building is the Palau del Consell, the headquarters of the island's government, a late-19th-century building on the site of a medieval prison. The Palau has its own collection of gigantes, and an impressive stained-glass window over the ornate stone staircase; visits inside can be arranged by appointment (visites@conselldemallorca.net).
