Palma de Mallorca is a multicultural city when you can hear many languages. This is because of its popularity with tourists. There are two official languages in Majorca and the rest of the Balearics: Catalan and Spanish.

Majorca's official currency is the euro, as in the other European Union countries that are part of the Monetary Union. If you need to change money, you can do so in banks in the city or in the bureaux de change located in the centre of the city and in tourist zones.

The electricity supply is 220 volts.
