It's a coveted tourist destination; it's the most celebrated and esteemed destination of Spain; it's your wonderful playground for the tourists; it's your Majorca, also known as Mallorca.

La Seu is a Roman Catholic Cathedral located in Palma de Mallorca. Near to La Seu Cathedral, Almudaina Palace is the Muslim palace of the Banu Ganiya, at the edge of the port.

Reaching from Andratx to the Cap Formentor, the Serra de Tramuntana is the mountain chain running along the north-west coast of Majorca.The scenic mountain chain is your destination for cities, such as Sóller, Pollença, Alcúdia, and Andratx. Soller and Port de Soller are a beautiful town and a local fishing port/harbour. You can access the town by a scenic train journey from Palma, or by tram from Soller to Port de Soller.
