The tour was very interesting, the guide was competent and could inspire the whole group. Since the group was small, everyone had a lot of it. I've been to Palma five times, but this time it was especially informative. Thank you very much

Highlights

  • Information on the history, culture, art, cuisine, politics and society of Palma and Mallorca
  • More than two thousand years of history can be experienced at the respective monuments

Description

Palma, the name evokes associations with sun, sea and holidays. So it may come as a surprise that a military commander of the city missed this poetic name when it was founded

Since its foundation Palma has had a varied history. Influenced and shaped by the Romans, Ostrogoths, Vandals, Byzantines, Moors and the Royal House of Aragon until it became part of the Spanish Crown and thus experienced developments and effects of Spain as a colonial power. The specific character of the locals welcomes strangers as guests, but also ensures isolation in order to preserve their own identity.

The tour to the highlights of Palma leads through the millennia, begins with the foundation by the Romans and shows clearly the development over the centuries.

Along the fishing port, the path leads you past the striking maritime exchange to the Consolat de la Mar. A historic building with a changeable use, which today is the most important political building on the Balearic Islands.

Through the old fishermen's quarter, the tour leads to the fortress of Es Baluard, with a magnificent view over the town and the port. Castell Bellver, which overlooks the city, is linked to the history of the kings of Mallorca.

Past the Museum of Modern Art, with some bizarre sculptures, the guided tour takes you back into the maze of old town alleys. Here you can still feel a sense of life in the Moorish and medieval times.

The BORNE boulevard seems to be the opposite. Historic aristocratic palaces have been converted into 5-star hotels and world-famous luxury brands operate their shops here. With the knowledge about the origin of this splendor mile, the tour passes the central plaza named after the king Juan Carlos the First.

Visit the upper city, passing through the historic Placa Mercat, which boasts a series of striking and exciting buildings Special stairs lead to the upper town, where the city administration has been based since the beginning. Here you can find the Town Hall, the Island Council, the Parliament, the March Palace and the Almudaina Palace.

The tour ends in front of the cathedral with its changing and mystical history

During the tour there are numerous tips on good restaurants, culinary delights, the hottest shopping streets, art and culture and many anecdotes about life on the island from an insider who has lived and worked on the island for more than ten years.
