It is all in the Palma of your hand: Visiting the Capital of Majorca   by Isla Campbell

Hotels in Palma de Mallorca

 
The Balearic island of Majorca is Spain's largest land-mass not connected to the mainland, with a population of almost 800,000. While officially known as Palma, its capital is also dubbed Palma de Mallorca or Ciutat de Mallorca, acting as the capital of the whole of the Balearics.

Palma lies in the Bay of Palma on the south coast and is home to almost half of the island's entire population. Whereas Majorca offers some of the world's most impressive beaches and not to mention good deal of favorable weather, the capital is perhaps better-known for what is on offer in its historic quarter. Made up of Renaissance mansions and Baroque churches, the area is an ideal starting point for tourists wishing to take in the island's history and culture.

Part of the reason the destination is of such historical interest is the sheer variety of its influences. It was first founded as a Roman camp.

There is also evidence of Vandal influence from East Germany and Byzantine control (mosaics are dotted around the city), before the arrival of the Moors. The Spanish took control over 300 years later when King Jaime I of Aragon laid siege to the island.

Easy to explore without the aid of transport, Palma's top attractions are now contained within the city walls. The much visited Almudaina Palace is the royal summer residence, whereas Bellver Castle dates from the 14th century and has a unique circular design. Possibly the most popular attraction though is Palma's Gothic cathedral, which took more than 500 years to build and forms the centre-point of the city's historic quarter.

The Cathedral of Palma, also known as La Seu, was built on the site of an Arab mosque, constructed from gold limestone from the local quarries of Santanyi. And although it was begun by King James I of Aragon in 1229, it wasn't until 1601 that it was finally completed. It has been reported that in 1229, the fleet of Jaime I was affected by a large storm while attempting to recapture Majorca. The king is said to have vowed to the Virgin Mary that he would erect a church in her honour if he made it through the storm safely; he immediately undertook the project when he landed safely on dry land.

Indeed, with so much to see and do, it is good to know that when looking for flights to Palma, visitors can be sure they will arrive at the heart of Majorca's historical significance. With the island's many attractions being so accessible, the city of Palma is an ideal place from which to explore; although, with attractions such as the Cathedral of Palma on their doorstep, many visitors may decide to stay put.
