Artist's Description

Porto Christo Harbour.

On the eastern coast of Mallorca (Majorca) in the Balearic Islands, lies the ancient fishing village of Porto Cristo, located in a long bay where the El Rivet river meets the sea, it is now a popular holiday resort with a quiet, friendly atmosphere.

Boasting the finest sheltered harbour on Mallorca’s east coast, Porto Cristo was formerly a significant naval base and it was the only town on Mallorca to see action during the Spanish Civil War, when Republican troops landed in 1936 in an attempt to take control of Mallorca from General Franco and his Nationalists, the attack failed and the island remained under Franco’s thumb for the rest of the war.

Majorca is one of the Spanish Balearic Islands situated off the coast of Spain in the Western Mediterranean.
