  • Would you like to discover the main highlights of Palma de Mallorca? Do you want a great introduction to the town but you don’t want to feel like a tourist? Well, you are in the right place! We invite you to discover the main highlights of the old town such as the Cathedral, the Townhall, the Lonja, the King Palace but also the backstreets outside the massified areas where you can really feel the real essence of Palma.

    We’ll meet in the town center, at the beautiful Lonja building, where the merchants used to discuss and talk about the business issues. It is one of the few examples in the world of civil gothic. From there we will walk in the narrow streets of Palma, we will pass through the gardens of the King “S’Hort del Rei” to arrive at the amazing entrance of the Cathedral.

    The Palma Cathedral, (also known as La Seu by the Palmesans) is right on the top of the sea. Amazing, isn’t so? We love it so much that we invite you to admire it from the outside but also from the inside with a skip the line ticket to save you time 😉 Inside there you will be astonished by the rosettones, the Modern art chapel made by a local artist called Barceló, the Gaudì chandelier (even Gaudì came to Mallorca!) mixed with the amazing gothic style of the Cathedral.

    But Palma is not just the Cathedral and the historic buildings; there are amazing hidden gems that just a few people are able to admire. And we will share these spots with you. In fact, we will walk in the backstreets where you will discover the ex Jewish area and learn a little bit more about their history.

    After all these backstreets we will come back to one of the main streets of Palma to the town hall where there are a lot of interesting spots and some hidden stories that our guide will tell you such as the 400-century-old olive tree or the giants hidden inside the town hall…And finally, you will get to the relaxing part of this walk around the center: the Olivar market!

    Inside this local market, you will discover the traditional food typical from Mallorca (you can get some original and yummy ideas for your souvenirs). There you will stop for a small tapa and a small glass of wine or beer and you will relax for a moment with your guide and your small group, as locals do after some shopping. This is the typical appetizer we have before going to have lunch.

    The tour ends at the market but, don’t worry, because your guide will be ready to help you to find your way back home…or she will advise you a good restaurant where you can have lunch! Feel free to ask her all the advice you need! Because we want to make your stay in Mallorca and in Palma memorable!
