Balearic Islands

Balearic Islands consist of an archipelago of five islands located in the Mediterranean sea. Amongst them, Mallorca is the largest, covering three-quarters of the island chain's total area....

Like many other Spanish regions, its history is a series of successive dominations. First by the Carthaginians, then the Romans, followed by the Moors and finally, its incorporation into the kingdom of Aragon.\n\nThe islands of Mallorca and Minorca will delight visitors with their splendid beaches and a backcountry of great beauty, full of trails and rocky inlets. As Ibiza, its reputation for offering a crazy night life in summer, makes it a favoured destination for party-loving youth from all around Europe. Alongside all that effervescence, the beaches of Formentera - the smallest of the five islands - offer an oasis of tranquillity, often envied by its neighbours.
