Ports

Palma de Mallorca, capital of the Balearic Islands, was first settled by the Romans. Evidence of over two thousand years of history can still be seen all over town. Visit the unique Bellver Castle, The Royal Palace of La Almundaina, and Palma’s silk exchange as examples of the town’s architecture. Palma de Mallorca is a festive town with plenty to see and do. Over 20 million tourists visit the city each year, but there are plenty of opportunities to escape the masses and explore for yourself.

Cartagena is a city in the southeast of Spain along the Mediterranean coast and one of the most important naval ports in Spain (also historically). It is the main military base and a home to a large naval shipyard. The Old Town is limited by five small hills: Molinete, Monte Sacro, Monte de San José, Despeñaperros and Monte de la Concepción, following the example of Rome. Enjoy the Spanish culture of food and beverages! Try some tasty tapas, local wine and fresh caught sea food.
