Palma is the capital and largest city on Mallorca just off the coast of Spain. This fascinating little island in the Balearic Islands has been highly fought over and colonized throughout the decades by the Romans, the Byzantine Empire, and the Moors. During this special guided walk you will visit the town square and historical area while learning about the city's rich history from its storied pirate days to the present. Along the way your guide will explain what you are seeing and put everything in proper context.
Walk over to Palma Cathedral, an imposing Gothic Roman cathedral standing 44 meters tall. Built over a Moorish-era mosque, this cathedral took almost four centuries to be completed. From there it is a short walk to the stately Almudaina Palace.
This Arabian fort-turned-royal residence is used today by the royal family to hold ceremonies and state receptions. Stop at the old walls of the city for beautiful views of the port and Bay of Palma as well as the circular walls of the Gothic style Bellver Castle nestled among resorts and other monuments.
Conclude your tour with an hour-long boat ride in the Bay of Palma where you can relax and enjoy views of the city from the sea. While here you will also be treated to an exclusive tour of the renowned port.
This private tour has built-in flexibility which allows you to make changes to the itinerary or stay longer for photo stops.
