Nice picture, but a little hint

PALMA

Since one year ago, the official name is "Palma" only
"de Mallorca" (regarding the island where they are) is out of date

(do not search in google, it is out of date too)

and yeah, it can be confusing having one island capital called Palma only (Balearic islands) and another one Las Palmas, same word but in plural (Canary islands).... but I bet that writing former name, some comments relating to it will appear


Please... "Palma"

(official webpage of their municipality: https://www.palma.cat/portal/PALMA/home.jsp?codResi=1 )

Title: Canterbury Cathedral
Location: Canterbury, UK
Source: Taken by me, I give permission to use it.



Description: I took this sunset picture of Canterbury Cathedral from the grounds of the King's School, Canterbury. From here, the Archbishop of Canterbury heads the Church of England. The Cathedral was founded in 597AD by St Augustin after he managed to convert to Christianity the Saxon people of Kent thereby becoming the first land in England to embrace the new religion. Whilst some of the original building remains, what we see nowadays is the Norman reconstruction from 1070AD, two years after they invaded England and three since the original building burned down.

It was also here that St Thomas Beckett was murdered in 1170. The death of the Archbishop brought huge changes to the city. Thousands of pilgrims from all over Europe came to pay tribute to the saint and brought a lot of wealth with them to the city. Today the city is easily accessible from London and mainland Europe via high-speed rail.

The school itself traces its roots to St Augustin's original monastery and it has been in continuous operation ever since then. Therefore, it is widely considered to be the oldest extant school in the world and it is one of the most exclusive schools in the UK.

Taormina

Title: Taormina

Location: Taormina, Italy

Information: The dramatic town of Taormina spills down cliffs, high above the Mediterranean, in northeast Sicily. Mt. Etna, its white plume drifting from its summit, can be seen looming over the region at the left.

During the early to mid 20th century, Taormina was a hangout for various intellectuals and writers, including D. H. Lawrence, Halldór Laxness, Bertrand Russell, Roald Dahl, William Faulkner, and Tennessee Williams. In a 21st century change of pace, Taormina hosted the 43rd G7 summit in April, 2017.
