Mallorca is the largest of the 4 Balearic islands in the Western Mediterranean Sea, about 170 kilometres away from the Spanish mainland. The capital Palma de Mallorca is a beautiful, lively and cultural city, with its massive Gothic cathedral dating from the 15th century that rises majestically over the luxurious harbour, the Bellver castle overlooking the city, and the nice old town with its small streets surrounding Plaza de España. Beyond the capital the island still contains many scenic villages and places that are interesting examples of rural Spanish life maintaining a traditional life. Outside the cities within old vineyards you can find some nice wineries offering guided tours and wine tastings.
The real Mallorca has much more to offer than what it is most famous for: sun, beach and party. Mallorca is a beautiful island of great contrast, with lonely coves, wooded hills, white villages and sandy beaches. The northwest coast of Mallorca is dominated by the Serra de Tramuntana, a typically Mediterranean mountain range with olive groves, pine forests and ocher-colored villages offers perfect conditions for outdoor activities like hiking, mountain biking or climbing. Get on a boat cruise along the coast or enjoy great views while seeing Mallorca from above in a hot-air balloon… or take the nostalgic train from Palma to the monutain and the beach of Port de Sóller.
The mountain villages of Valldemossa and Deià deserve a special mention, they belong to the most beautiful what Spain has to offer. Frédéric Chopin spent in the Monastery of Valldemossa the winter of 1838/39 and wrote here some of his most important pieces. Mallorca is indeed a very attractive destination for incentive and convention groups, with easy access from all over Europe, a mild Mediterranean climate, a varied nature and an amazing cultural and leisure offer for its visitors.
