El Portixol is the closest end to Palma in the neighborhood known as El Molinar
This neighborhood located to the east of the capital was a former industrial neighborhood. With the disappearance of many of its factories in the 50s and 60s it suffered a notable deterioration, but in the 90s it received a facelift and became one of the fashionable neighborhoods of Palma.
The Portixol area used to bring together most of the Molinar fishermen’s huts, and already in 1928 a yacht club was created, one of the oldest in Mallorca
In the 70s and 80s the club expanded, attracting more members. Parallel to this with the reforms of the Molinar in the 90s, a promenade was built that connects the Portixol with the Paseo Marítimo de Palma and that on the other side reaches the Ciudad Jardín.
El Molinar in general and the Portixol area in particular is consolidated as a leisure and gastronomic destination, and numerous bars and restaurants of all kinds are opened
It combines the proximity of Palma but without the inconveniences of overcrowding. From here you have magnificent views of the bay of Palma, highlighting the panoramic view of the Bellver Castle, at the other end of the city.
