Its population is approximately 702,000 with over 5 million people visiting the island each year. The island thrives with a rich lifestyle that includes shopping, exciting fiestas, spiritual awakenings, beach life, and much more.

Mallorca Spain Coastline
There isn't a month that goes by that Mallorca does not have a fiesta. Bonfires, extravagant feasts, colorful parades, and dancers in fancy costumes line the streets. Travelers will find many opportunities for All Inclusive Holidays to Majorca available, so no matter when you plan your visit, you are certain not to miss some excitement.

 One particular site to visit would be the Santa Eulalia. The Gothic cathedral was sculpted over two centuries. Complete with gargoyles, animals, and other mythical creatures, the cathedral expands over 5 isles. It was given its name after Eulalia of Barcelona, a young virgin who fell prey to martyrdom during the times of the Romans. Urban legend says that she was exposed in the public square for all to see. Then, from the heavens, a snowfall began and covered her naked body. The Romans were outraged that the Gods took pity upon her and they put her into a barrel, stuck it with knives, and rolled it down the street. Her body lies in a crypt in the cathedral.

 The church holds many interesting facts of artwork as well. For instance, the choir stalls house the coat of arms for The Knights of the Order of the Golden Fleece. One of the two chapels was dedicated to “Christ of Lepanto”.

 Another story told to generations, is that the crucifix in the chapel is from the actual ship that fought at the Battle of Lepanto. The legend states that the crucifix was originally erected straight but through a miracle it shifted to the right to avoid being hit by a cannonball.

 Mallorca has about 80 beaches for you to choose from, including topless. The beaches vary from large and crowded to more secluded coves. You can partake in every water sport imaginable.

 There are many beautiful parks and botanicals to visit like La Granja Gardens, Jardines Casa March, and Parc Natural Mondrago.

 The La Granja Gardens begins at a quaint garden house and expands into a wooded valley. The grounds were constructed in the 13th century.

 


 At Jardines Casa March, one can expect complete tranquility walking through the citrus groves. There are also large beds of roses, and wall after wall of ivy and large trees.

 A popular place on the island for walking is the Parc Natural Mondrago. It is well known for its long winding footpaths for unspoiled natural relaxation.

 For the thrill seekers, Mallorca caves offer an exciting adrenaline rush. Truly breathtaking scenery the Caves of Drach lead to one of the world's largest underground lakes. Other cave sites include, Hams, Genova, Cova, Campenet, and Arta Caves. Come to Mallorca, Spain and let your imagination roar.
