Get to know the charms of Palma’s historic centre through five cultural tours led by expert professional guides: “The City and the Sea”, “A Stroll through the Fishermen’s Quarter of Santa Creu”, “EL Call Major' and “The Convent of the Capuchins of Palma” (a visit to the cloistered convent of Capuchin nuns).

Modernism was a revolutionary cultural and artistic phenomenon which left its mark on Europe during the transition between the 19th and 20th centuries, and had a broad-reaching influence on architecture and the decorative arts.
This guided tour will enable you to discover the influence of modernism on the city of Palma through the buildings erected as a consequence of this innovative aesthetic spirit, buildings that brought a colourist note to the imposing austerity of the mansions in the historic city centre.
The introduction of Modernism into Mallorca was due to the presence of representative figures of Catalan modernism, such as Antonio Gaudí i Cornet and Lluís Domènec i Montaner, amongst others, who travelled to the island for commissioned works. Most modernist works were carried out through private initiative, with the impulse of the new Mallorcan bourgeoisie, who became wealthy through commerce, industry and emigration at the beginning of the 20th century. The generation of local architects, like Gaspar Bennàssar , Francesc Roca, Jaume Alenyar, Guillem Reynés etc., adopted the new style leaving their stamp on a group of buildings destined to social and private life and the world of commerce and industry.
