In this paper we prove that a normal Gorenstein surface dominated by P2 is isomorphic to a quotient P2/G, where G is a finite group of automorphisms of P2 (except possibly for one surface ). We can completely classify all such quotients. Some natural conjectures when the surface is not Gorenstein are also stated.
