Mallorca (from latin \'insula maior\', and then \'Maiorica\' meaning major island) is an  impressive island, the biggest of the balearic archipielago, it is the most  eastern region of Spain. The geography of the island  allows you to choose all kinds of activities, whether you\'re looking for an  urban athmosphere, such as Palma, or if you prefer a more relaxed rural environment or its countless sun-drenched gorgeous clean beaches.

Palma is a wonderful city in which you have a number of monuments that you should be sure to visit. The gothic cathedral with its stained-glasswindows dominates the waterfront and backs onto the oldest part of the cit where churches of medieval, gothic and baroque periods are found along with  Renaissance style buildings (like the City Hall) and stately homes with  beautiful patios. The maze of streets at the back of the cathedral leads to the  beautiful Banys Àrabs, the old Moorish bath house which is worth a visit. The  Palau de l\'Almudaina stands opposite the cathedral entrance. L\'Almudaina used  to be the palace of the Moorish governors and later of the Mallorcan Kings. The  Castell de Bellver (the Castle of Bellver) is a beautiful well-preserved  fortress dating back to the 14th century. It is located on the top of a wooded  hill and has spectacular views over Palma Bay.
