Palma de Mallorca, officially known in Catalan as just Palma, is of the largest cities in Spain with the population of over 400 000 people, the capital of the island of Mallorca and the capital of the autonomous community of Balearic Islands (Spanish: Islas Baleares; Catalan: Illes Balears).
The driving force behind Palma's economy, just like that of the rest of the island, is tourist industry, on which the government of Palma has relied since the beginning of the 20th century. At the service of visitors are numerous hotels of all categories and sizes, excellent medical care, convenient transit system. The city has 5 major department stores, including El Corte InglГ©s, Carrefour and Alcampo, 4 superstores, over 260 supermarkets, 1300 bars and restaurants.
Palma is divided onto 5 districts: Distrito Norte (Northern District), Distrito Centro (Central District), Distrito Poniente (Western District), Distrito Levante (Eastern District) and Playa de Palma (Beach of Palma). The central district, basically the Old town, is of the most interest to visitors, since this is where major cultural and historical monuments of the archipelago are concentrated. Plus, the name of the very popular beach district of Palma speaks for itself.
The Old Town of Palma is bordered by the Balearic sea and Avenidas, six avenues running through where the ancient ramparts used to be - the ruins had been dismantled in the early 20th century. Avenidas form a 2460 meters-long semi-circle. The Old Town is a conglomeration of Gothic structures of both secular and religious significance, each of which is a heritage sight. The period of construction of most of them falls between the 13th and 15th centuries, when Mallorca had been experiencing an economic boom after being reclaimed by the kingdom of Aragon from the Moors during The Reconquista of 1229-1235.
Major architectural sights include the Palma Cathedral, or La Seu, as it is known to locals, The Palace of Almudaina (Palau de l'Almudaina) and the stock exchange Sa Llotja. The great Antoni GaudГ worked on the interior of La Seu from 1904 to 1914.
Apart from the Gothic architecture, the Old Town has plenty of Modernista works. The most notable is the Gran Hotel building designed in 1903 by LluГs DomГЁnech i Montaner, which houses CaixaForum Palma exhibition centre today. Other buildings include Can BarcelГі on PlaГ§a Quadrado, Can Corbella on Sant Domingo street, bakeries Fondo and Des Teatre on UniГі street, Can Salas and Can Coll on Sagrera boulevard.
Playa de Palma consists of 6 areas: Can Pere Antoni, El Molinar, El Coll d'en Rabassa, Can Pastilla, Les Meravelles, S'Arenal.
