Palma is famous for La Seu, its vast cathedral originally built on a previous mosque. Although construction began in 1229 it didn't finish until 1601. Since the 1950s, the advent of mass tourism radically changed the face of both the city and island. In 1960, Majorca received 500,000 visitors while by 2001 more than 19,200,000 people passed through Son Sant Joan airport near Palma. Any visit to Palma should include The Old City (in the south-east area of Palma behind the Cathedral) it's a fascinating maze of streets clearly hinting towards an Arab past.
