Itinerary

We will start in Parc de la Mar, in front of the Tourist office just below the Cathedral. Then we will sit in the "Atarazanas" arch and start with a brief introduction. We will walk towards the royal palace of the Almudaina and the walls surrounding the city.

We will stop in front of the Cathedral to admire its stunning architecture details and its reflection in the water. You'll understand immediately why it's also known as the "Cathedral of the Sea".

After that you will explore some of the narrow streets and corners of the Old Town. Pass by stately courtyards and patios, whose style reflects the city's Roman, Muslim and Catalan cultures. Stop in front of the Parish Church of Santa Eulàlia, the oldest Parish church of the Baleric Islands.

Reach the center of Palma to see City Hall, located in the emblematic Plaza de Cort, considered "kilometer 0" of Mallorca: the origin of all the roads. Continue on to see many Mallorcan modernist buildings that follow the Catalan Modernism trend.
