Traffic congestion is a familiar story in Palma when there are cloudy days in summer. | Jaume Morey
On cloudy summer days it is calculated that the number of people in Palma is 100,000 higher than the registered population of 420,000. In addition to tourists already in the city, many come in from the rest of the island*. The town hall, which has given this calculation, believes that this number will fall as a consequence of the Balearic holiday rentals legislation.
