What To Expect
We will guide you around the historical architecture of Palma by bike, going around the most important places in town!
The city's lovely cathedral was built on an Arab mosque during the Reconquista. It is designed in the beautiful Catalan Gothic Style, but you will also see the echo of its Northern European influences, such as its high church nave. The calming waters that surround the area are a clear green, providing a pleasant ambiance as you bike by.
The Almudaina Palace was once an Arab fortress, and the official royal residence since the 14th century. Restored by King James the II, he remodelled the palace to include the Chapel of Saint Anne, a symbol of the triumph of the Reconquista.
Go back in time at the Jewish Quarter, which since the 5th century has been home to the Jewish population and a stronghold for their heritage. During the repression of the 14th and 15th centuries that led to forced conversions, the Jews proved the strength of their culture by establishing secret synagogues within the quarter. You can still see these makeshift hideouts where they safeguarded their religion and culture today.
The colourful Main Square has wonderful high domed entrances. This is the perfect spot to watch people go about their daily lives as you pass them on your bike, still retaining its spirit as the public square where people converge. See the cafes and restaurants intrinsic to the way of life of the locals.
Enter the museums which encompass the entire history and culture of the place at the end of the day.
