A new private enterprise has been given the task of organizing tours of the historic patios (courtyards) in Palma. I went on one of the tours last Saturday, given in Castellano, and I can only give full marks to the service provided. The guided tours are offered in Castellano, Catalan, English and German. Two tours are available: Palma Alta, the area around and behind the Cathedral, and Palma Baixa, the area to the West and to the North of the Passeig des Born. The programme will continue until the end of June.
Here is the schedule for the next two weeks: Friday, June 15th, Palma Baixa (English or German); Saturday, June 16th, Palma Alta. (Catalan or Castellano); Friday, June 22nd, Palma Alta. (English or German); Saturday, June 23rd, Palma Baixa (Catalan or Castellano); Friday, June 29th, Palma Baixa (English or German); Saturday, June 30th, Palma Alta (Catalan or Castellano). Meeting place is the Típika shop in Plaça Santa Eulàlia. Tickets are sold at 10 € (8 € for Palma residents). Tours start at 10h30. You can make reservations by telephone (971.728.983). You will see Palma in a completely new way after such a guided patio tour, I promise.
The photos were taken in and near Palma, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: April 2nd and June 9th, 2012. The time was 12:57:11 and 10:59:11, respectively.
