Majorca is the largest island in the Balearics and its chequered history of Moorish and Catalan influence have left a rich legacy of architecture and gardens for visitors to enjoy. Palma, with its magnificent cathedral, is the main centre. The rugged northwest coast is dominated by the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range, a beautiful region of olive groves, pine forests and ochre villages, which has been made a World Heritage Site in recognition of the techniques used to develop agriculture on its steep slopes over the centuries. Majorca's famed beaches and magnificent cave systems are on the north and east coasts.
