Welcome to Palmas


We wouldn't cross the country to visit, and until neighboring Taquarussú really takes off as an ecotourism destination, there aren't that many reasons to come here, although it does have a certain appeal as a study in custom-made, modern urban architecture.

Food Hopping Tour Palma - Patios, Palo & la Cuina Mallorquina

ItineraryThis is a typical itinerary for this productStop At: Mercat de l'Olivar, Palma de Mallorca, Majorca, Balearic IslandsTogehter with your Food Hopping guide, you'll enjoy a sparkling cava inside a historic palace, discover regional fruit and catch at the market hall, experience a true taste explosion in Elena’s shop when sobrasada meets orange blossom beer, and much more.Duration: 1 hourStop At: La Rambla, Palma de Mallorca, Majorca, Balearic IslandsNumerous mementos hang from the ceiling, resembling votive offerings in a church. The predominantly local guests, however, pay greater homage to the art of cooking. The family-owned bodega has enjoyed a reputation for 75 years for serving the best tapas and "variats" from all over Mallorca. Like Errol Flynn and many other celebrity guests in the past, you will sample one of the house specialties that has made the traditional Bodega a gastronomic icon in Palma. Duration: 1 hourStop At: Placa Del Mercat, Palma de Mallorca, Majorca, Balearic IslandsHere you are at the core of "culinary archaeology": Tomeu, a native of the island, swapped his white lab coat for a baker’s apron to become a guardian of Mallorcan baking traditions. Together with the Regional Museum, he explores lost historical recipes and breathes new life into almost forgotten local delicacies with organic ingredients. In his lovingly decorated bakery you enjoy a delicious savoury pasty, prepared in a way which has remained unchanged for many generations. Duration: 1 hourStop At: Placa de Cort, Palma de Mallorca, Majorca, Balearic IslandsHidden away in the middle of the old town labyrinth is a small family-run Mallorcan institution. When winding your way through the narrow lanes, your Food Hopping guide shows you wonderful coverted courtyards that recall Palma’s golden age with their morbid charm. After listening to stories of power, fate, and family feuds, you experience the sweet side of life in Palma with a home-made creamy refreshment: Three centuries ago, Joan, a humble delivery boy, had the idea of mixing ice from the mountains with syrup and almonds. He thus laid the foundation for the first “heladería” in Mallorca, which has sweetened the lives of locals and visitors ever since. Duration: 1 hour
