Did You Know?

Mallorca's tumultuous history dates back as far as the Paleolithic period (6000-4000 BC), and these archaic times are still palpable when visiting Mallorca. In addition to Palma's modern, cosmopolitan atmosphere, ancient burial chambers and castles are accessible from the island's capital.

Orientation:

Mallorca, Spain's largest island, is located in the Mediterranean Sea. Along with Ibiza, Formentera, and Minorca it makes up the Balearic Islands. Mallorca's northeastern coast is formed by two adjacent bays (the Badia de Pollença and the larger Badia d'Alcúdia). Palma, the island's capital, is located on the southwestern corner of Mallorca and is another sweeping, majestic bay. Palma and Alcúdia are connected by two highways, which illustrate the beautiful coastlines, rigid cliffs, and towering mountains of Mallorca.
