Get an insight into Mallorca's traditional gastronomy!


If you are an avid taster of traditional food and you enjoy discovering the exquisitenesses of every region you visit, then this is the perfect tour for you!

Join me on a cultural itinerary across Palma's Old Town through which we will get to know the evolution of traditional recipes in the city as well as to discover the places in town that were main markets in the past.

During our walking tour we will stop at some local taverns to taste some of the most famous Mallorcan appetizers. That way you will understand our gastronomic culture and you will feel like a true islander!

Itinerary

We will start our tour at Palma's Marina, on the lower side of town. In that area we will explore the fishermen's neighborhood to understand how important Mallorca was in the Middle Ages as a commercial superpower.

Then we will stroll through the city and we will be stopping at different taverns and bars to taste several kinds of delicacies as local beer, Mallorcan wine, cheese, cold meat, liquor, white buns, salty cakes. . . and even some tapas!

At the end of the tour I will take you back to any place you choose in town.

Meeting Point + Tour Duration

Meeting Point Options: Rail or Bus Station, Hotel, Suggested by Guide: How to get to Parc de la Mar: you need to take the shuttle bus from the cruise ship to the city center. The shuttle leaves you next to a breakwater called Escollera. Once you get off the bus, you go towards the Cathedral (the Cathedral is really huge and it will be in front of you as you get off the shuttle, so there is no way you miss it). Then, you cross the motorway by the pedestrian crossing and... that is it! The esplanade with an artificial lake you will see before you is Parc de la Mar.

Duration: 4 hours

Very important: the food samples displayed on this tour can vary depending on the day and time of the tour due to the stalls' timetables.
