Discovering Mallorca: The summer residence of the King of Spain
Mallorca, the lush and enchanting Balearic island in the Mediterranean, has long been a favorite destination for tourists and nature lovers alike. However, beyond its stunning beaches, exquisite gastronomy and picturesque villages, Mallorca is also known for being the official summer residence of the King of Spain.
A bit of history
Mallorca has been linked to the Spanish Royal Family for centuries. Its majestic landscape, the mild climate and the serenity that is breathed in its corners, have made this island an idyllic place to rest and disconnect. The choice of Mallorca as an official summer residence dates back to the days of King Juan Carlos I and has been continued by his son, King Felipe VI, who has followed the tradition of visiting the island with his family during the summer months.
The Royal Marivent Residence
The Marivent Royal Residence is the place where the Spanish Royal Family spends their summer vacations. This magnificent residence, located on the outskirts of the island's capital, Palma de Mallorca, has become a symbol of the monarchy and the close bond between the Royal House and the Balearic island.
With panoramic sea views and surrounded by lush Mediterranean gardens, the Marivent Royal Residence offers a tranquil and private retreat for King Felipe VI, Queen Letizia and their daughters, Princess Leonor and Infanta Sofia. The residence, modern and elegant in style, has all the necessary comforts to receive the Royal Family, but also stands out for its discretion and simplicity.
