A busy stop in the Mediterranean: Your holiday in Mallorca
Mallorca is one of the most appealing islands located in the Mediterranean. As the meaning of Mallorca implies ('big island'), it is the largest island of Spain. Being also the second most populated Spanish island after Tenerife, about half of the Mallorca's inhabitants live in Palma, the only real city and centre of the island. Resting on the mountains not far from the city, Palma is a city of blue sky, beautiful people and the ongoing festival spirit.
Ibiza's historical and cultural neighbour
Whereas Ibiza is most popular for its parties and clubs, Mallorca represents the historical and cultural side of the Balearic Islands. It is one of the most visited ancient centres of the Mediterranean, and there is evidence of life from the Palaeolithic Period on the island. Throughout its history, the island has been home to Romans, Vandals, Byzantines, Pisa and Catalan Kingdoms, Muvahhids, Mourabests, Aragon Kingdom and Castilians. During your holiday, Mallorca will let you explore the cultural heritage of these and many other civilisations in the most exclusive historical sites.
