A city with a lot of history
The city of Palma was officially founded as a Roman foundation in 123 BC. In 902 AD the Balearic Islands were incorporated into the Umayyad emirate of Córdoba, and the island became known as "Madina Mayurqa." During this period, the city's urban layout was defined as it is today. And it was not until 1229 that King James I's troops conquered Mallorca, and it became the "Kingdom of Mallorca." At that moment, the foundations of today's Mallorcan society were laid: religion, culture, institutions, customs, language.
