The Balearic Islands region
Majorca or Mallorca, is an island located in the Mediterranean Sea, one of the Balearic Islands.
The capital of the island, Palma, is also the capital of the autonomous community of the Balearic Islands. The Cabrera Archipelago is administratively grouped with Majorca (in the municipality of Palma). The anthem of Majorca is La Balanguera.
Like the other Balearic Islands of Ibiza, Formentera and Minorca, the island is a highly popular holiday destination, particularly for tourists from United Kingdom, Germany, Ireland and the Scandinavian countries. The name derives from Latin insula maior, "larger island"; later Maiorica, "the larger one" in comparison to Minorca, "the smaller one."
Majorca has two mountainous regions each about 70 km in length. These occupy the north-western (Serra de Tramuntana or Tramuntana range) and eastern thirds of the island. The highest peak on Majorca is Puig Major (1,445 m) in the Serra de Tramuntana. As this is a military zone, the neighbouring peak at Puig de Massanella is the highest accessible peak (1,364 m). The northeast coast comprises two bays: the Badia de Pollença and the larger Badia d'Alcúdia.
The northern coast is rugged and has many cliffs. The central zone extending from Palma is generally flat fertile plain known as Es Pla. The island has a variety of caves both above and below sea-level. Two of the caves above sea-level also contain underground lakes and are open to tours. Both are near the eastern coastal town of Porto Cristo, the Coves dels Hams and the Coves del Drach. It is the largest by area and second most populated island of Spain (Tenerife in the Canary Islands).
The climate is Mediterranean, with markedly higher precipitation in the Serra de Tramuntana. Summers are hot in the plains and winters mild to cool, getting colder in the Tramuntana range; in this part of the island brief episodes of snow during the winter are not unusual.
The island is home to dance artist/producer DJ Sammy and contemporary painters such as Miquel Barceló, José María Sicilia, and Astrid Colomar. Maria del Mar Bonet and her brother Joan Ramon Bonet, both members of the group of Catalan language singers known as Els Setze Jutges in the 1960s, are from Majorca, as is the contemporary pop group Antònia Font.
Typical coastal scenery of Mallorca, which generally is dominated by fine white sandy beaches, caves, and rocky coves like this one.
The Balearic Islands, of which Majorca forms part, is one of the autonomous communities of Spain. It is governed by a coalition of five different leftist and nationalist parties headed by the Partit Socialista (Spanish Socialist Workers' Party) under Francesc Antich.
The popularity of the island as a tourist destination has been steadily growing since the 1950s with many artists and academics choosing to visit and even live on the island. Visitors to Majorca continued to increase with holiday makers in the 1970s approaching 3 million a year. In 2010, over 6 million visitors came to Majorca staying in at the many resorts. With millions of rooms available Majorca’s economy is largely dependent on its tourism industry. Holiday makers are attracted by the large number of beaches, warm weather and high quality tourist amenities.
Sóller is a town and municipality near the north west coast of Mallorca, in the Balearic Islands of Spain. The town is some 3km inland, from the Port de Sóller, in a large, bowl-shaped valley that also includes the village of Fornalutx and the hamlets of Biniaraix and Binibassi. The combined population is around 14,000. A famous tramway, the Orange Express links Sóller to Port de Sóller.
Sóller is linked by the historic railway, the Ferrocarril de Sóller, and by a highway with a toll tunnel, to the Majorcan capital of Palma. The Andratx-Pollença highway also runs through the valley. The Ferrocaril was completed in 1911 after work began on the profits of the orange and lemon trade.
The present-day economy is based mainly on tourism and foreign residents, complementary to the agricultural economy based around citrus and olive groves, which has, in recent years, suffered from low prices.
The focus of the town is the Plaça Constitució which is surrounded by cafés and has plane trees and a fountain in its centre. The tram passes through the Plaça on its way to and from the main station which has been restored to incorporate a museum of Picasso and Joan Miró. The church of Sant Bartomeu (Saint Bartholomew) facing the east side of the Plaça is flanked by the ajuntament (town hall) and the Banco de Sóller, a remarkable 1912 Modernista building with defining ironwork, by the Catalanarchitect Joan Rubió i Bellver, a follower of Antoni Gaudí.
The bank's organisation was founded in 1889 with the money of emigrants who returned prosperous to Sóller. On the other hand, the church can clearly be seen standing out from the canopy of the town from other parts of the Vall de Sóller (the surrounding valley). The original building dates from some time before 1236. The current main interior structure is now largely baroque (1688–1733). The campanar (belltower) blends in well with its neo-gothic design. T
he remarkable façade is a 1904 construction, also by Joan Rubió. The old street plan is of Islamic origin and lined with historic houses of the sixteenth to eighteenth centuries. The town has a covered market and is bisected by a fast flowing river with a number of bridges. Sóller is also notable for the houses built in the early twentieth century by emigrants who returned wealthy to the town, particularly those on the Gran Via which reflect the fin de siècle Art Nouveau styles of France.
The renowned Jardí Botanic (botanical garden) is on the outskirts of the town and is laid out with the plants of the Balearics and the Mediterranean islands. The Modernista mansion in the garden houses El Museu Balear de Ciències Naturals (The Museum of Balearic Natural Sciences). Despite its location next to the highway the garden is quiet.
Since 1980, Sóller has hosted a week-long international folklore festival every July.

"Comfortable but needs a little "TLC""
A spacious apartment off a scruffy courtyard. The furniture was functional and the bed was very comfortable and the apartment was reasonably well equipped but ill matched, eg only 1 tumbler and misce… More
we always appreciate feedback from guests and if we can resolve any problems or discrepancies we do.In this case the client is a little over the top in the criticisms and our response is as follows.
We asked them politely and without pressing to be reasonable in their use of water and electricity..both are valuable commodities these days and should not be wasted.
It clearly states in the adverisement that there is a roof terrace with steps leading up to it.The handrail is not sually a problem but we will add an additional handrail despite the fact that the majority of guests have no problem going up the steps.
the furniture is IKEA and is not normally an issue so don't understand this criticism..it is supposed to be 'functional'.
We share the courtyard with our artist neighbour who uses the other half of the factory as his studio.The factory is over 100 years old and there are only certain things we can do.Anyway clients are not renting the entrance courtyard.
Re. parking this client had a problem manouevering his hire car and tried to turn round in a restricted space whereas the correct procedure is to drive in and reverse out as my neighbour and we do succesfully several times a day.He also tried to park sideways in what is clearly not a practical solution.The parking in the courtyard is a concession and is not included in the rental.Most clients use the spaces in the lane 20 metres from the apartment.
Glasses..we always tell guests as soon as they arrive that if there is anything missing,broken or whatever then to please tell us and we will do our best to fix it...so they could have resolved the lack of a tumbler within minutes.However the comment is noted and more glasses are provided
