Palma, Petra and the Franciscan Order History in Mallorca with a private guide

Born on November 24, 1713, in Majorca, Junipero Serra joined the Franciscans in 1731. In 1742, he earned his doctorate in theology from Lullian University. He moved to Mexico and then to California, where he founded the mission villages: San Diego, San Carlos, San Antonio, San Gabriel, San Luis, San Juan Capistrano, and San Buenaventura.

With this tour, you can discover the origins of Father Serra and understand why Mallorca is called a "Franciscan Island".

As soon we arrive, the tour around the town will take place. This includes visiting the place where Father Serra was born, his school, San Francisco Church.
A introduction of the Majorca' Franciscan order, Raimundo Llui and the influence of the franciscans into Majorca's way of living are only a few of the topics the tour guide will approach during the tour duration.

We'll visit too Rafa Nadal Museum and Drach Caves.


The tour will start with a car pick up from the hotel / apartment.
We will be leaving during the morning time in direction to Inca, where we will take a rural train until Sineu (old capital of Majorca and Petra - Father's Serra hometown).

Guests will have time to enjoy themselves and have a coffee or any refreshment during the tour.

A Recent Review of this tour

Felipe worked very hard to provide me with a first class experience on a private tour of St. Juniper Serra's origins in Mallorca. He made a special effort to add value to what was promised and enabled me to experience the roots of St. Juniper Serra and Bl. Ramon Llull. Highly recommended.
