The draft text of the law identifies various offences that are classified as minor, serious or very serious. In the minor category is ignoring traffic restrictions on the Formentor peninsula. Minor offences will result in fines of between 300 and 6,000 euros.
Graffiti is included in both the serious and very serious classifications. Fines of between 6,001 and 150,000 euros (serious) will apply to defacing buildings, monuments, rocks or walls. Very serious will be graffiti or any other form of "graphic expression" if the building (or similar) has protected status as historical heritage.
As well as the fines, any individual, organisation or other will have to pay the costs of the damage and of restoring whatever has been affected to its original state.

Can't they just ban graffiti paint cans from the island? Or severely restrict the sale of them? Fines are ok to put in place but most people are never caught so it's not really addressing the problem.
Constructors are building a 4mtr high sound barrier 200 mtrs long by the motorway near Bendinat. They are painting it green to blend in with the trees behind, very nice it is too. Except for the fact that the graffiti low life have moved in and are defacing it, as it is being built and nobody gives a monkeys. ???
