Walking tour

Accessible

Description

We usually walk the streets of Palma at a brisk pace and looking downwards. 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, always more pending of a smartphone than of an unseen fantastic world among the walls of the old town.

Itinerary

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 aristocratic manors, churches, squares, fountains, institutions, 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 in our beautiful city.

What travellers said about this tour

5/5
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.

You need to take the shuttle bus from the cruise ship to the city center. There are several bus companies that offer the shuttle service; you will find them inmediately as you debark. The buses that offer this service have a board on the windshield that says “shuttle” alongside the name of your cruiseship. The shuttle bus leaves you next to a breakwater called Escollera. Once you get off the bus, you walk 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 light and… this is it! The esplanade with an artificial lake you will see before you is Parc de la Mar. You will see your tour guide holding either a tablet or a clipboard with your name on it.
