Palma

Palma

The fishing nets put out to dry on the quayside glisten brightly in Mediterranean blue. Behind the nets you can catch sight of the stock exchange building La Lonja, dating from 1388. During the Middle Ages, the place where local people are now drinking coffee was where most of the Mediterranean area’s trade was handled. As early as 123 BC the Romans christened this town with the name Palmeria. Later, the name given to Palma by the Moors—Medina Mayurka—became the name for the whole island.
