Palma de Majorca as World Heritage Site?

The city of Palma is seeking the status as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The motto of the application is "Palma, Cultural Landscape by the sea".

On Thursday morning all parties that are represented in the City Council voted for the proposal by the Board of Examiners.
However, there is still a long way to go. First, Palma has to get on the Spanish proposal list, which is then submitted to the Unesco.
Palmas candidacy is based on several elements, including the architecture, the exchange between Jewish, Muslim and Christian culture, as well as the 2000 year history as a trading town by the sea.

Mallorca is already represented on the UNESCO list twice: with the Sibille singing and the Tramuntana mountains.
