Welcome to Majorca

Majorca

The island of Majorca which is located on the east Coast of Spain is one of the biggest island in the Balearic group and is one of the most popular destination for Irish tourist.

There are the most famous bays in Europe such as the bay of Pollença, the bay of Alcúdia and the bay of Palma.

But there is not only wonderful coast and beaches but also mountains: the main peaks are Puig Major and Puig de Massanella which offer different activities such as walking, climbing and cycling.

There are also many natural parks and reserves where tourists can get pleasure from stunning landscapes and enter in contact with animals. More than 600 animals, as giraffes, zebra and monkeys, can be seen at the Safari Zoo and bird watching is one of the activities can be done at the S’Albufereta Nature Reserve.

Tourists can get to Majorca with flights that land at the Son Saint Joan International airport, 8 km far from the city centre which can be economically reached by shuttle bus (it runs every 15 minutes) or taxi.

Palma is the major city of Majorca and the capital city of the Balearic Islands, the cultural and city centre with its 14th century cathedral, named La Seu, and BellverCastle. La Seu is also named the “Cathedral of Light” due to the 61 astonishing stained-glass windows on it.

Another site to visit is the Bellver Castle (Catalan name for “lovely view”) that was used as a prison for six centuries. From the top of the castle it can be seen a wonderful 360-degree panorama of the Island.
