Palma de Mallorca
Palma de Mallorca is the capital of the unbelievable island of Mallorca, the largest of the Spanish Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean on the east coast of Spain.
Palma de Mallorca is located in the south-east of the island and has more than 400.000 inhabitants. However, its population greatly increases in spring and summer with an incredible amount of tourists and cruise ship passengers, as the island is one of the favourite European resorts and the city enjoys a privileged climate with an average temperature of 18ºC.
The city lies on the bay and those lucky enough to arrive by sea will enjoy an impressive first view of the white circular battlements of Bellver Castle, sitting on a raised hill, overlooking the bay and the famed Gothic cathedral, standing out against the horizon, with the ancient Almudaina Palace beneath.
Tourism is the largest source of income. At the beginning of this century a select European type of tourism started to arrive to the city that became home to artists and poets, who also considered the island as a place of inspiration.
Over time, Palma de Mallorca has become a modern, cosmopolitan city rich in possibilities, which welcomes visitors with open arms all year round.
Palma de Mallorca is an urban destination, ideal for both short breaks and longer holidays.
