Tour description

Hello! I am Marina, your Official Guide in the Balearic Islands. I was born in this beautiful Mediterranean city and I am delighted to share with you my love for Palma and its charms, every corner has a fascinating story that I want to tell you. Ready to explore together?


What are we gonna see?


We meet next to the statue of Es Foner to discover the origin of the islands and on our walk around the iconic Almudaina Palace , the center of power on the island for centuries and the charming gardens of S'Hort del Rei, we will discover how the city was founded by Romans, shaped by Muslims and immortalized by Christians.


We are going to walk along the Paseo del Borne , following the old bed of the Torrente de Sa Riera , to the picturesque church of San Nicolás and we will go up to the upper part of the city to the Plaza de Cort , km 0 of the island, presided over by a centenary olive tree and buildings of great architectural beauty such as the Town Hall and the Consell de Mallorca, discovering curious historical figures, traditions and folklore of the island.


Exploring the surroundings of Santa Eulalia , considered the first church in the city, we will talk about the Jewish neighborhoods and the emblematic Patios de Palma , immersing ourselves in legends and traditions. In addition, I will share gastronomic recommendations to enjoy local flavors.


We conclude our tour near the Episcopal Palace and El Mirador , which will give us spectacular views of the Parque del Mar and the bay of Palma, with the majestic Cathedral as the final touch of this tour. Do you dare to discover Palma with a unique perspective? I assure you that you will fall in love with this city!

I did the Historic Centre of Palma tour today with Marina. The walking tour lasted approx 2hrs. We visited all the major sites such as the Royal Palace, Gran Hotel, Placa Major & we finished at Palma Cathedral. Marina was friendly & informative, She even gave me advice about what souvenirs to buy. I'd highly recommend this tour.👌
