If the inhabitants who populated the Balearic Islands before the Catalan conquest, were killed or expelled from the islands, and the islands were populated by Catalans. There are a series of contradictions that do not fit with the Catalanist version of history.
Just observe to realize this.
||Peasant dress. The Majorcan peasant dress has absolutely nothing to do with Catalan ones.|
||Architecture. The country houses of the Balearic Islands are different from the Catalan ones.|
|Toponymy. There is not a Nova Barcelona or a Nova Girona, the names of the towns in their great majority are previous to the arrival of the Catalans.|
|Gastronomy. In gastronomy there are dishes that are typical of the Balearic Islands and others very similar to Arab or Jewish foods.|
And many other details that make it very difficult to admit the Catalan version.
