What makes this tour special
Rise and Fall of Empires
Lying on the southern shores of Mallorca, Palma looks out over the sparkling turquoise seas of the Mediterranean: not only a beautiful location, this key strategic position has resulted in a long and turbulent history for the capital. From Ancient Rome to the Byzantine empire, the Arab Moors to medieval Christianity, Palma has a rich and culturally diverse heritage for you to discover on this half day tour of the city’s historical highlights.
Starting in the central square of Plaza Mayor, your tour will begin with the famed Gothic La Seu Cathedral, whose dazzling walls are matched by a heavenly interior designed by the eminent Antoni Gaudi. In the adjacent Almudaina Palace, your knowledgeable guide will lead you through the lavish interior of what was once a Moorish fortress and would later become the official residence of generations of Mallorcan royalty. Alongside these monuments, the stunning Palau March and La Lonja buildings nearby offers panoramic views from their outdoor terraces. Gothic Heart of Mallorca
From here your tour will venture into the labyrinthian streets of the old Gothic quarter, where you’ll have the chance to peep inside opulent houses and their captivatingly concealed courtyards, as your local guide leads you to hidden gems such as the Basilica of St. Francis and the serene Arab Baths. Hear stories of how nobility mingled with merchants and pirates in these streets, and discover how modern life in Palma has seamlessly interwoven with centuries past.
Touriocity Top Tip: Look out for delicious ensaimadas during your tour – these fluffy, spiral-shaped pastries are unique to Mallorca, and a great source of pride to the locals.
