Like Cannes or Monaco, it is a haven for the Spanish and European jet-setters, who spend the summer on yachts or in country houses nestled in the hinterland.

A part of the coast is crowded and literally submerged by tsunamis of tourists in July and August. It is particularly popular with the British and Germans.

Though, the island, with its 200 beaches, has a lot to offer.

Beyond its beaches, Mallorca is one of the most beautiful islands in the Mediterranean, and Palma worth a visit.

The cathedral, called la Seu, is the largest in Spain after the one of Seville. Its vault is 44 meters high and only exceeded by the Beauvais’ and Milan‘s Cathedral.

The old town is a Mediterranean dream, with its narrow streets, Gothic churches, and Catalan modernist buildings.
