It may seem like a simple answer to many, but because Mallorca is an Island, many people wonder if it is its own country. We've put together this short post to help you answer this question.
Mallorca is not its own country. It's part of the country of Spain. Mallorca is part of the Balaeric Islands, located just off to the east of mainland Spain. The Balearic Islands are an autonomous province of Spain, which means they govern themselves and have their own laws.
Mallorca is the largest of the Balaeric Islands, with over 930,000 people living on the Island. The capital of Mallorca is Palma de Mallorca, and an estimated 409,000 people living there alone.
