Borne - Palma de Mallorca
The Paseo del Borne is an emblematic street of Palma de Mallorca which joins two areas, Plaza de las Tortugas (o Plaza Juan Carlos I) with the Plaza de la Reina, where the Lonja is situated. It was built over an old riverbed of the Torrente de la Riera, which once in olden days crossed the centre of the city. It consists of a central pedestrial passage with two traffic lanes (one each side) one for each direction. There you can find the Casal Solleric, a former palace transformed into a place for exhibitions of works of art for the delight of the public. On arriving at the Plaza de la Reina, it then leads onto the Paseo Maritimo and in the Plaza de Juan Carlos I it meets up with the flow of traffic of the Avenue Jaime III on the left, which is one of the main commercial areas of Palma and with the street known as la calle Unión to the right, which in turn leads onto the Ramblas.
