The Placeta de Sant Jeroni in Palma’s old town is adorned by a very charming fountain with four water spouting lion heads, dating from 1860. The small square lies at the southern edge of what earlier, from the end of the 13th century to the 15th century, used to be Palma’s Call, the Jewish quarters. Together with Barcelona and Gerona, Palma de Mallorca was amongst the most important Jewish communities of that period in Spain.
Guided tours of a duration of 2 hours are available through the Call in Catalan, Castellano, English and German (10 €). On one of these tours you might hear some surprising information about the old days of Palma’s history. The office for such Itinerarios culturales has moved to Palma’s Carrer Montenegro, 5 (telephone 971.720.720).
