The city of Palma de Mallorca was once coveted by Romans, Moors and Berber pirates. The Moors were finally overthrown by the Spanish in the 13th century, and Palma became an important port & commercial centre in the Mediterranean.

The aim of the visit of Palma de Mallorca is showing the city through an attractive tour, explaining the most important tourist sites in Palma: its streets and historical places, as well as its more representative monuments and buildings.

The Cathedral of Palma is built in a spectacular location on the bay and next to the fishing harbour. It is an elegant Gothic cathedral, and it is harmoniously built.

The Almudaina Palace is the former Moorish palace and residence of the monarchs of Majorca is currently used as a museum. Its appearance as a Moorish fortress contrasts with the rich ornamentation of the flamboyant Gothic Chapel of Santa Ana that can be found inside.

The Llotja is the old fish market, which is used for exhibitions today, is one of the best examples of civil Gothic architecture in Spain. Its Solomonic columns and cross vaults are quite unusual for a secular construction.
