There are eyes watching you everywhere in town...


We are always so hurried that we forget we are surrounded by eyes that observe us from above. Small beings that inhabit the buildings' stones of the city watch us day and night. But we ignore them.

I invite you to go inside a universe of mythological animals, demons, monsters, gargoyles, dragons and creatures of unimaginable forms. We will visit Palma in a very different way than the usual. We will not focus on the most emblematic monuments and buildings of the city, but on their extravagant tenants that, always with a curious look, watch over us from his elevated houses.

Old aristocrat manors, churches, squares, fountains, façades, statues… any of them is a good place to find monsters and creatures in Palma. And all of them are excellent reasons to stop looking at the ground and to look always upwards to discover new secrets hidden in our beautiful city.

Join me and check it out yourself!

Itinerary

We will stroll through both sides of Palma (the upper side and the lower side of town) going beneath some of the main buildings and monuments in the city, like the Town Hall, the Born's Promenade, the Balearic Parliament, the Insular Council, the parish church of Santa Eulàlia, the Almudaina's Palace, the church of Sant Francesc and, of course, the Cathedral of Mallorca. In every stop we make we will try to find monsters and creatures tangled among the buildings' architectural details. This is, without any sort of a doubt, the best way to discover our ancient city, since you will be keeping your eyes all around and having fun at the same time. As a matter of fact, this tour is a nonstop game!

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: 3 hours

I can arrange a tour for larger groups.

A Recent Review of this tour

The tour was amazing! Much better and more than I anticipated. Albert is an amazing story teller and very knowledgeable guide. I felt transported back in time as we walked the narrow streets of the Old Town. I learned so much about the real history of Mallorca. It was incredible and a great way to spend the day.
