The 32nd Symposium of the Collegium will be held in Palma, Mallorca, Spain. Founded in 124 BC Palma is a resort city and capital of the Spanish island of Mallorca (Majorca), in the western Mediterranean. The massive Santa María cathedral, a Gothic landmark begun in the 13th century, overlooks the Bay of Palma. The adjacent Almudaina is a Moorish-style Arab fortress converted to a royal residence. West of the city, hilltop Bellver Castle is a medieval fortress with a distinctive circular shape.
Travel Arrangements and Airport Transfers
The Palma International Airport (PMI) is the closest airport to the hotel options and the Victoria Convention Centre and located around 8 km away from the city center. CIA will not provide airport transportation from the Mallorca Airport to the Convention Centre but there are local options that will be available for you to choose from.
Using public transport, the easiest way to get from the airport to the hotels and the Victoria Convention Centre is taking the bus L1. Follow the ‘bus’ signs at the airport to the airport bus station (Aeroport – Arribades) and look for the bus line 1. It will take you around 30 minutes from the airport to the station ‘Passeig Maritim 33’, from where it is only a few minutes’ walk to the hotels along the prom. The bus departs on a regular basis, every 15 minutes. Further information on the local bus timetables can be found here: http://www.emtpalma.cat/en/lines-timetables. The bus ticket from the airport to the hotels and the Conference Center costs around 5€.
You also have the opportunity to take a taxi from the airport to the hotels and the Convention Centre, which takes you around 20 minutes and should cost you around 20€ or you can hire a car directly at the airport.
