The perfect day in Palma exploring the central features that make it one of a kind

Begin your tour in front of the Cathedral of Santa Maria of Palma (La Seu), the city’s premier church since the Crown of Aragon erected it on the site of a former Moorish-era mosque, replacing the Muslim faith that once dominated the city with the Christian. Wander through the interior of the church, setting the tone for the history and culture of this dynamic retreat city. Learn of its Gothic architecture and almost 400 years of construction, including the rift between artist Antoni Gaudi and the contractor that led to his abandonment of restoring the Cathedral.

Begin your tour in front of the Cathedral of Santa Maria of Palma (La Seu), the city’s premier church since the Crown of Aragon erected it on the site of a former Moorish-era mosque, replacing the Muslim faith that once dominated the city with the Christian. Wander through the interior of the church, setting the tone for the history and culture of this dynamic retreat city. Learn of its Gothic architecture and almost 400 years of construction, including the rift between artist Antoni Gaudi and the contractor that led to his abandonment of restoring the Cathedral.

From here, make your way through to the nearby Royal Palace of La Almudaina, just on the banks of the Bay with its turrets, crenel and merlons reaching into the lapis sky over Mallorca. Explore the exterior as your expert guide offers stories of the Royal Family, and the many interesting architectural features.

You have put in some hard work so far - so it is time for a break and the Ca’n Joan De S’aigo is just the place - a beloved ice cream and pastry (sounds good to me!) venue where we will taste an ensaimada, a truly local Palma treat. After these refreshing goodies, it’s back to the streets to make our way to the Monastery of Sant Francesc. Not only will we visit the interior of this beautiful space to marvel before the sandstone cloister with its lush orange and lemon trees, but also taste the olive oil produced locally in Palma.

From here, there are a few more enticing things to see and your guide by now has made you fall in love with sunny Palma (if you weren’t already before). With a stop at humble, but no less beautiful and quiet Santa Eulalia church and then the sweeping Plaza Mayor, your day will simply seem just perfect. At Plaza del Mercat, a small square with the traditional vibe of the city, your guide will begin to wrap up your day - touching on the history showcased here. For your final destination, the Plaza de las Tortugas where a few surprise features in the central fountain will reveal the long and touching history of the city and its residents.

Please note, you will be provided with the option to download an app prior to the tour. This app gives the opportunity to use your personal smartphone and earphones to hear your guide at a distance and will work without using any WiFi or mobile data. More details will be provided in your confirmation email.
