Palma de Mallorca and Surroundings
The old city is stunningly beautiful and contains a vast array of squares, elegant buildings, pedestrianised streets that are a pleasure to wander through and of course the city's main tourist attractions, including the cathedral and the ancient Arab baths.
Set in the beautiful bay of Palma, famous for its stunning sunsets, the city's most imposing site is the huge 13th century cathedral. This beautiful building is close to the 10th century Arab baths and is the gateway to the city's old quarter of narrow winding streets and ornate squares where orange and olive trees give shade to the many charming street cafés.
Palma has a population of just over 300,000, among the most diverse to be found in Spain. The Mallorcans themselves are descended from a mix that includes Spanish, Arabs and Carthaginians, and today they share their island with people from all over Spain and Europe, as well as with a substantial population of South American and African migrants. There is a lively arts scene and a nightlife to suit any taste.
There is a large sailing community and the sailing year culminates every summer when the city hosts the Copa del Rey yachting competition.
