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 Ibiza lies in the Mediterranean Sea and is located to the east of the Iberian Peninsular and is one of the Balearic Islands. The island's land area is just over 570 sq. km and along with the neighbouring island of Formentera was called the island of the pines by the Greeks. Ibiza Town, the largest town on the island, was first settled by the Phoenicians and still has walls surrounding it that were built in the 16th century to prevent attack by Turkish pirates.
Today, the town is characterized by narrow cobbled streets, medieval mansions and a cathedral which is located close to the castle. the island is popular with scuba divers who are attracted to the island's warm, clear waters. The sea bed in the Las Salinas National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, because of the ecological importance of the sea grass that grows there.
