Mallorca is the largest one of the Balearic Islands, which attracts tourists from all over the world for the unique warm and mild climate and rich cultural heritage. The first colonization of Mallorca was carried out by the Phoenicians and Carthaginians, later the island fell under the influence of the powerful Roman Empire, whose historical evidence has survived to this day in the form of massive ruins. From the XII century AD, Mallorca was influenced by the Moorish people, and this made the mark on architecture, folklore, culinary traditions and culture in general. In the XIII century, Mallorca became an independent state under the leadership of King Jaime, and a half century later became part of the Spanish kingdom. Many palaces and fortresses, striking their power, are silent witnesses of the heyday of the island.
The most convenient way to travel around the island is by car, so in a short time you can see the most beautiful places in Mallorca. Enjoy both natural sights, which are definitely worth a visit, and cultural heritage sites from medieval castles to modern art galleries in one route. A gourmet will have a chance to taste the best local dishes and wines.
