What is the origin of the Balearic Islands? What was Mallorca called in ancient times? Join us on a journey through the 4000 years that have turned it into that GREAT island that once fascinated the Roman settlers and that now promises to conquer you.
We will be waiting for you in the Plaza Mayor, the nerve centre of the city, to embark on a journey through its 4000 years of history, from the Roman Palma to the Ciutat de Mallorca, passing through the Arab Medina Al-Mayurqa.
We will stroll through the historic centre to discover its monumental and cultural wealth. Did you know that it is one of the largest and best preserved old quarters in the Mediterranean? Every street and every little alley is a treasure that hides emblematic shops, modernist buildings and unique corners such as the Plaza de Banc de l'Oli.
For those of you who consider yourselves gastronomic travellers, welcome to the Olivar Market. We will love strolling among the aromas, colours and flavours of its different stalls... a good time to talk about Mallorcan gastronomy, isn't it?
We will follow the medieval layout of its streets until we reach the parish church of Santa Eulalia, the oldest in Palma; just a few steps later we will arrive at the Plaza de Cort, where we will admire the emblematic Town Hall building, although it is not the only emblematic thing we will find there.
Did you know that Palma is known as "the city of courtyards"? Some of the most beautiful stately homes await us with their doors open, waiting to be discovered by our curious eyes.
Our free tour is not over yet, paradise awaits us! We will enter the beautiful Jardines del Obispo (Bishop's Gardens) to prepare for our next stop: Palma Cathedral.
This imposing building, considered one of the tallest Gothic structures in Europe, has become a symbol of the Balearic capital along with La Almudaina, the royal palace that we will find in front of it.
We will finish our free tour in the Parc de la Mar. In front of this large saltwater lake we will find a beautiful panoramic view of the Renaissance walls and the Cathedral.
