Majorca is the largest island in the Balearic Islands. Together with Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera, it makes up the easterly autonomous community in Spain.
The Majorcan landscape is made up of the high Tramontana mountain range, the more modest Levante mountain range, and other lower hills. The Tramuntana mountain range in the northeast creates impressive cliffs and rocky coves that contrast with the sandy beaches along the rest of the coast. The capital city of Palma is located in the very centre of Palma bay.
Majorcan cuisine is typically Mediterranean and comprises a variety of popular dishes such as ‘frito mallorquín’ (offal, vegetables and potatoes). We should also mention the delicious Majorcan soups, ‘tumbet’ (with or without local esclatasang mushrooms), and their stuffed aubergines. ‘Pa amb oli’ (bread with olive oil) is one of the island’s most traditional dishes and accompanies most meals.
