Son Oliva and Plaza de Toros neighborhoods are characterized by being very central, dynamic and at the same time quiet areas of the city of Palma. Currently, they have around 6,400 and 16,000 inhabitants respectively. They are recommended for all types of families, since the variety of services they provide at all levels is endless.
Both belong to the northern district of the capital. The two are very well connected, because in a matter of 10 minutes walking, 3 minutes by car or 5 minutes by bus, one reaches the center of the city.
Son Oliva borders with La Indioteria, Plaza de Toros, S'Olivera, Son Cladera and Son Forteza. Its name comes from the fact that before urbanization, this neighborhood was full of olive trees, so typical of the island. The Plaza de Toros neighborhood is located between Marqués de la Fuensanta, Hostalets, Archiduque, Buenos Aires, Son Oliva, Son Forteza and Camp Redó. The name of this neighborhood is due to the Balearic Coliseum (the Old Bullring), which is part of the city's historical heritage.
These areas have supermarkets such as Eroski, Mercadona or Bip Bip, pharmacies, flower shops, printers, workshops, printers, jewelry stores, gas stations, shops, hairdressers, agencies, laundries, workshops and much more.
Regarding healthcare, families who decide to invest in this neighborhood can live in peace. The areas have health centers, the Red Cross center, dental clinics, even a blood bank or veterinary clinics, for those who have pets. Health also means disconnection and for this reason it is advisable to escape to green areas from time to time. These neighborhoods have Salvador Hedilla Park and Son Costa Park. In addition, the two neighborhoods are 5 minutes away from the largest and best known, Ses Estacions park , which has areas for people of all ages.
Education is key and these neighborhoods know it. From the Petit Angelet nursery to the Son Oliva School, the Jesús María de Palma School or the Pius XII. There is also room for the elderly as there are several schools and training centers: the Inprogress school, ESERP Business School, the Reisan Training Center or the Estena Group, a school dedicated to health.
Last but not least, both neighborhoods are full of delicious cafeterias and pastry shops, such as the well-known Reina María Cristina bakery, famous for its incredible ensaimadas and cottage cheese robiols. There are also plenty of takeaway stalls, bars where you can eat local tapas or the traditional pamboli. There are two mythical restaurants, one of those of a lifetime, which are the El Límite burger restaurant or the Kebab Kapadokya. In turn, pizzerias and taverns abound. For beer fans, Seattle is your brewery.
These neighborhoods are characterized by an optimal connection in terms of transport since in Son Oliva we will find the Son Costa - Son Forteza train and metro stop, as well as many bus stops distributed along the main streets of both areas. They are only a few minutes from the center by car, on foot or by public transport.
These two neighborhoods are ideal for those who want to be connected to the bustle of the center without being in the heart of the city. The peace of mind of having all the services that exist and will be available, including green areas, health centers and schools, is priceless. That is why we without a doubt recommend these neighborhoods for all those who want to start a new home with their loved ones from scratch.
