Unique. picturesque. traditional
Village flair with stunning views
No other village is as close to the metropolis of Palma de Mallorca as Genova and at the same time as unique as this Mallorcan village. In just a few minutes driving from Palma, you’ll have escaped the busy streets and traffic of the capital and you’ll be in the mountains with spectacular sea views across the bay from Palma all the way to Cabrera. This picturesque place is surrounded by pine forests that invite you to go for walks and hikes.
Get lost in its unique atmosphere
With its typical streets and houses built in the traditional Mediterranean style, Genova gives the feeling of escaping to a quiet corner of the island. Despite the village atmosphere in the center, Genova has been developed more and more over the years and is now considered one of the most desirable residential areas of Palma.
History and culture
Living in Genova
Genova is ideal for a sunny holiday home, but also for living all year long. The village maintains its authentic Mallorquin feeling despite being inhabited by an international community. It is very close to most of Mallorca’s international schools (Queens College, Agora, Baleares International College, Green Valley Int. School, King Richards III College, Bellver Int. College, Lycée Francais, Svenska Skolan Palma etc.). One has quick and easy access to the city and the highway network, which ensures accessibility for any work or private life activity. Even the airport can be reached directly via the highway in just 15 minutes.
Everyday goods and more are available in Genova. The small but fine bakery “Forn de Genova” offers fresh bakery products and delicious coffee every day. Right next door is a small supermarket and not far away a pharmacy. But the divers shopping facilities of Palma de Mallorca can also be reached within only a few minutes. One of the largest shopping centers the Porto Pi, is very close by.
Sights in Genova
Its is always worth going to Genova. Because of its elevated position, Genova offers fantastic views stretching for miles across the island. One of the main attractions are definitely the gigantic views of the village, the city and the sea from the statue of Na Burguesa. But also the caves “Coves de Genova” offer a small insight into the underground world that the island has to offer. There are other interesting historical sights nearby, such as the Bellver Castle, one of the city´s landmarks, as well as the Marivent Palace, the summer residence of the Spanish royal family, or the famous Cathedral of Palma “la Seu”. Another attraction are the numerous very good restaurants that Genova has to offer.
