Beginning with a brief chapter on Majorca as a whole, the book then explores each of the seven regions in detail. Tramuntana, with Soller as the main town, is the mountainous region in the northwest. Ponent is the southwest region with Calvia as its main town, but tourists are attracted to its seaside resorts such as Magaluf (where I stayed) and Port Vellis. Raigner is an inland region sandwiched between Tramuntana and the Pla, with Inca as its main town. Raigner has a diverse industrial base including farming, vineyards, shoemaking and pottery. Despite (or because of) all the industry, Raigner has plenty to offer tourists who wish to get away from the beaches for a while. Palma is the region containing and dominated by Majorca's capital city of the same name. The Pla, with Sineu as its main town, is a large, predominately rural region in north and central Majorca. Migjorn is the southeast region with Llucmajor as its main town. The book says that this very dry region can only support certain types of agriculture, especially not livestock (since they require plenty of water), yet some cattle (descended from imported Frisians) are reared here to support the local cheese industry. Wine and tourism are also important in the Migjorn region. Llevant is the northeast region with Mancor as its main town. [via]
