Tour description

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

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

We start our tour at the Es Baluard modern art museum where we will visit the bastion of San Pedro, which was the most important site of the western defense of the city. Later we will walk along 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 to s'hort del Re i, 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 such as 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 prince's bastion, which was the most important place in the eastern defense of the city, ending at the Gumara Towers, which were ceded to the Templars after the conquest of Mallorca.

Fue un tour muy bueno. Únicamente adelantaría la hora de la tarde para que no se haga tan de noche. Todo lo que recorrimos estuvo muy bien
