Stunning beaches and natural scenery as well, but also compelling cities and towns - above all the extraordinary capital Palma de Mallorca
The big one
The largest and most important of the Balearic Islands (and site of their capital, Palma de Mallorca), Majorca is also the most diverse in its offerings, from its lovely natural landscape - perfectly balanced between land and sea - to the history and culture of its cities and towns. Particularly the capital, with its gigantic cathedral by the sea; the old Jewish quarter, an example of the multicultural hybridisation that has been the result of the march of many cultures through these islands, both peacefully and militarily; and the El Jonquet fishermen's quarter, still a bastion of tradition even though it's located right alongside two of the island's liveliest districts, Santa Catalina and the Passèig Marítim (waterfront boulevard).
