The accessible Palma Highlights Tour begins with a drive along the Maritime Promenade to the Bellver Castle, one of the most unique examples of Gothic civil architecture in Mallorca. From the ramparts, visitors can enjoy fantastic views of the city and the port below. A great opportunity to capture the sight on camera!
Sweeping back down the hill to immerse oneself in the old historical Gothic Quarter with its maze of tiny streets, plazas, and courtyards. Besides, the accessible tour includes a visit to the 13th-century Gothic-style Cathedral La Seu. The cathedral includes a 44-meter-high nave and Baroque chapels. Parts of the Cathedral were designed by the Catalan Modernist architect Antoni Gaudi.
Next to it stands the Almudaina Palace, a monument that was converted from an Arab fortress into the residence of the Kings of Mallorca. Of course, the guide will highlight the most important aspects of this monument from the outside.
Strolling away from the Almudaina Palace area towards Plaça d’Espanya, visitors will pass through the Passeig del Born. It is one of the most lively streets in town, flanked by narrow medieval lanes as well as elegant palaces of the 19th century.
Finally, the tour drives along Palm’s Passeig Maritimo. Here the tour will pass the exclusive yacht club, marina, and the fish market Sa Llotja, perhaps one of the most outstanding examples of Gothic civil architecture in all the Mediterranean area. Guillem Sagrera built this between 1426 and 1448. Today it is the home of the Museum of Arts.
