Full description
Your tour begins with a stroll around lively La Lonja, the ancient fish market that used to be the main meeting point of choice for local merchants. You’ll check out the neighborhood, making your way towards the Hort del Rei, a medieval garden that once belonged to the spectacular Almudaina Palace, home of Mallorcan Kings. Next door, you’ll spot the Statue of the Slinger. Your guide will explain the history and the importance of these indigenous warriors, who were extremely popular among the Carthaginian and Roman armies because of their immense courage and expert aim. Behind the statue, you’ll have the chance to take some pictures of the Arc de la Drassana connected to the palace when the main harbour was located outside the city walls of Palma.

As you stroll beside the walls, you’ll discover one of Spain’s most magnificent gothic masterpieces: our cathedral, La Seu. You’ll take a look inside and your guide will give you the lowdown on the building’s history, the centenaries sandstones, its famous rose windows and the controversial chapel of Miquel Barceló. Next, you’ll hit the narrow surrounding streets, heading towards the Jewish Quarter and have a chat about how the Christian Conquest affected the Jewish community on the island. At the Town Hall Square, you’ll stop to admire a 500-year-old olive tree before making your way to the El Olivar market, one of the most popular shopping areas in the city. Here you’ll find colorful groceries, fresh fish, and world-class charcuterie. Be prepared for a beautiful opera of aromas.

Your Palma adventure ends with a small, tasty tapa accompanied by a glass of wine or beer. Before you go, don’t forget to ask your local guide for more tips on what else to see, do and eat during your stay in Mallorca.
