Palma comes from the Roman 'Palmeria' who first came to the Island in 123 BC. Following a long Byzantine and then Muslim periods Palma's real expansion started in 1229 with the arrival of James I of Aragon. His son, James II, was responsible for many of today’s major sites, such as Bellver Castle, Palace of Almudia and the Cathedral. Today Palma's beauty, climate, location and culture make tourism its largest industry.
