Majorca

Its pleasant climate, scenic beauty, beaches with clear waters, and valuable artistic heritage make Majorca a wonderful island. Majorca has maintained corners that jealously guard its ancient traditions and gastronomy that will enable you to enjoy the flavours and scents of the Mediterranean.

Palma

Explore the streets of its historic quarter and let yourself be enveloped by the magic of some constructions with modernist touches. Lose yourself on Las Ramblas and the Born and continue to La Seu, the majestic Gothic cathedral of Palm, which offers wonderful sea views. The cathedral: Built between the 14th and 19th centuries in a French Gothic style, it has the largest rose window in Europe and is probably the most distinctive symbol of Palma, the capital of Majorca. La Almudaïna Palace: This royal palace was constructed on an Islamic Alcázar. It was the residence of Majorca's first monarchs. La Lonja: This is one of the most beautiful examples of civic Gothic architecture in the Mediterranean region. Today, it is home to the Museum of Fine Arts. Passeig del Born: This is the nerve centre and heart of the historic quarter. It is one of the liveliest streets in the city. Placa de Cort: In this square you will find the Local Government building, with its beautiful 17th century facade. Nearby, you will find Santa Catalina Church, which is another Gothic building. Bellver Castle: This is an almost perfect example of 14th century military architecture. It is the only castle fortress with a circular floor plan in Europe.

Ferrocarril de Sóller

Enjoy the best excursion on the island with the Sóller train that links Palma de Mallorca and Sóller, passing through Son Sardina and Buñola.

The Ferrocarril de Sóller is a narrow railway only a yard wide. This is highly unusual today. It uses very varied, old automobiles with artisan details.

The train is also known for its special, attractive path, which crosses the natural barrier of the Alfabia Mountains, which are 2.8 kilometres wide and 496 metres high. To do so, the train, using a section of track only 7 kilometres long, overcomes a slope of 199 metres and a gradient of 23 degrees, passing through 13 tunnels ranging in length from 33 to 2876 metres. It crosses many bridges, a five-arch viaduct and it rounds many corners, some with radii less than 190 metres.

Santuari de Lluc

Santuari de Lluc, a spiritual centre of great devotion among Majorca natives, pays tribute to the statue of the Mare de Déu de Lluc, the patron saint of the entire island.

It is a sacred forest from prehistoric times; the first Marian shrine on the Balearic Islands since the 13th century. Here, believers will find the hallmarks of the church. Non-believers will find the deepest roots of Majorca as Lluc is more than a sanctuary: it is a national sign of identity. Foreign visitors will enjoy something different to days at the beach and nights spent clubbing.

Caves of Drach

Situated on the east coast of Majorca, these caves are one of the island's main tourist attractions as they are 1200 metres long, diving up to 25 metres below the surface of the earth at their deepest point.

The Caves of Drach were known during the Middle Ages but they weren't explored until 1880 by M.F. Will and then in 1896 by E.A. Martel, who discovered the cave with the lake of the same name. Between 1922 and 1935, the cave was prepared for visitors, opening a new access point, tracing paths, installing stairs and providing lighting designed by the engineer Buigas.

The visit lasts around an hour and includes a classical music concert and a boat ride on Martel Lake. The interior temperature is around 21ºC while humidity stands at 80%.

Cap de Formentor

Cap de Formentor is the northernmost outcrop of land on the island of Majorca and one of its natural symbols formed by a peninsula.

It can be accessed using a snaking road offering spectacular views the length of its 18 kilometres. You will be able to discern the Bay of Pollensa and great cliffs. At the end of the road you can choose from beaches with clear waters or you can visit a lighthouse where winds and waves crash against the rocks, modelling the varied coastlines of this cape every day. At some points the cliffs reach heights of 300 metres. Views from Formentor Lighthouse and other points on the road make this place popular with tourists.

Valldemosa

This village on the island of Majorca, just 17 kilometres from the capital, is situated 435 metres above sea level. It forms a part of the Serra de Tramuntana, the mountain chain that stretches along the northern coast of the island for 80 kilometres.

The origins of the name of this village can be explained by the Islamic influence in Majorca's past. It lasted 300 years, following the invasion of the Iberian Peninsula in 711. Valldemossa is rich in fountains and surrounded by abundant vegetation (olive trees a thousand years old, holm oaks and almond trees), which is why visitors are offered a sense of peace and quiet. Special charm lies in its narrow, steep streets. The village is home to the birthplace of Majorca's most venerated saint, Catalina Thomàs, who was born in Valldemossa in 1531 and died a saint in Palma in 1574. There is also a notable 13th century church here that was renovated extensively in the 18th century. The main attraction in Valldemossa is definitely its Carthusian monastery.

Es Trenc Beach

Es Trenc is a long, idyllic beach with white sands and clear waters. Stretching for approximately 3 kilometres, it is surrounded by dunes and groves of pine, tamarind and juniper trees. Animals such as seagulls, rabbits and different insects live in the area.

Its waters are calm and a deep blue while its white sands are fine. Some days welcome a sea breeze. This beach can be accessed on foot or by car as there is plenty signposting on the roads to aid navigation. The roads to it have even been improved to make things easier. It offers disabled access. Beautiful sunsets can be enjoyed from this beach, which you simply must visit if you're heading to Majorca.

Serra de Tramuntana

Serra de Tramuntana is the main mountain range on the Balearic Islands. It is situated in the northwest of Majorca, and this location lends it its name ("tramuntana" is the wind that comes from this direction).

Its origins date back to the retreat of the Alps in the Mesozoic Era. It is home to the three largest reservoirs in Majorca: Cúber, Gorg Blau and the military reservoir used at the Puig Major Base. This mountain range also provides the name of one of the regions in Majorca. Like other regions on the island, it is not officially recognised. Its current regional capital is Sóller. In June 2011, the cultural landscape of the mountain range was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
