The call, the old Jewish quarter of Palma Mallorca, still preserves an important historical legacy. Discover it for yourself with this FREE tour!
Palma Jewish Quarter Free Guided Tour
We'll set off on our guided tour starting from Plaza de Cort, by the Town Hall. During the Middle Ages, this central square of the Balearic capital was the old Jewish quarter of Palma Mallorca. What was life like for the Jewish population of this area of the Kingdom of Aragon? What cultural legacy have they left us? We'll find out the answers to all these questions and more on our tour around the old aljama.
The Jewish population lived in the "call", formed by narrow alleys that still survive today: Carrer Sòl, Carrer Monte-Sion... We'll make a stop in front of the Monte Sion church. Its Jewish name is no coincidence, as it stands on top of an old synagogue.
In the 15th century, the Jews were expelled from the Christian kingdoms (including Aragon, to which the Balearic archipelago belonged). From then on, the xuetes, descendants of Jewish converts, emerged. During the walk, we'll marvel at how their influence is still evident in the culture of Palma Mallorca.
We'll end the tour at the Palma Cathedral.
