Tour description

A monumental, unique route that will allow you to discover the entire historical part of the city

We are going to learn about the history of Palma from the perspective of the city walls . A walk at sunset through the bay of Palma where you will discover hidden corners, surprising legends, curiosities but above all, a lot of history.

We begin our tour at the Es Baluard modern art museum where we will visit the San Pedro bastion , which was the most important location for the defense of the west of the city. Later we will walk where the old Muslim walls were located, visiting two emblematic places such as the Plaza de Atarazanas and the old Lonja de Palma , the first large civil building built in the city. We continue our way towards s'hort del Rei , an orchard that was part of the Almudaina Palace which, together with the space where the Cathedral is located, is the oldest area of Palma.

The walls hide neighborhoods like La Calatrava, where we will visit Can Formiguera, the Arab baths, the Santa Clara convent, the Montisión church, the Jewish quarter.

Our tour will take us to the bastion of the prince , which was the most important place in the eastern defense of the city , ending at the Torres de Gumara , which were ceded to the Templars after the conquest of Mallorca.
