Mallorca, the largest of the Balearic Islands has become one of the most popular holiday destinations in Europe. Interesting features about Mallorca:
However, Mallorca offers much more than beach holidays with bustling nightlife. The old quarter of the city of Palma de Mallorca contains Gothic architecture and countless corners full of history which are waiting to be discovered. There are unspoilt beaches with crystalline waters. There are also small villages in the island´s interior and mountain regions, where the pace of life is slow and which in many cases have become havens for a wide variety of people from all over, who mix with the locals and form part of this authentic side of Mallorcan life. And then there are the landscapes, which have been a source of inspiration for creative geniuses such as the British poet Robert Graves, who is buried in Deià, the Polish composer Frederick Chopin, who spent time in Valldemossa with George Sand, and the painter Joan Miró, amongst many others.
