The city of Palma is located on the south coast of the Spanish island of Majorca and is the capital city of the Balearic Islands. The city lies on the Bay of Palma and is surrounded to the north and west by a mountain range, which has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, called the Serra de Tramuntana. The city's history dates back to Roman times when the site of the present day city was an established Roman camp. Over the course of its history, the city has also come under the rule of the Byzantine Empire, the Moors and James I of Aragon.
The city is now very popular with tourists with attractions like La Seu, the city's cathedral. Built on the site of an earlier mosque, construction on the cathedral began in 1229 and was finally completed in 1601. Also in the city is the Parc de la Mer (the Park of the Sea) which is overlooked by the cathedral and is where visitors can relax under a large yellow and blue canopy which provides shade to a row of wooden benches.
Palma Ferry Port is located on the south western side of the city and provides excellent views of the cathedral as ferries depart. The busy port has good connections to major roads leading out of the city. Destinations available from the port include Ibiza, Mahon, Barcelona, Valencia and Denia.
The Spanish island of Formentera is one of the Balearic Islands and is roughly 20 km long and lies around 6 km to the south of the island of Ibiza. The island is known as the last Mediterranean paradise because it is successfully been able to provide a good mix of environmental protection along with tourism. The island is relatively inaccessible as the only way to get to it is by boat from Ibiza which makes the island a great place to visit if peace and tranquillity is what you are after. Visitors to the island enjoy cycling or swimming off one of the island's 20 km of beaches. The Posidonea Prairie that surrounds the island acts as a natural water treatment plant that cleans the water and makes Formentera different from the rest of the Mediterranean. The sea off the coast of the island is an underwater jungle and has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The crossing time by ferry to Ibiza is around 30 minutes.
