The activity was pretty good, phenomenal. Our guide, Pedro, a 10 rating, highly recommended from start to finish. It explains the history of each store and some history of the site, all very dynamic. Also, the tour comes with surprises. The truth is that the best thing that I take from the experience is what I learned thanks to Pedro with his explanations.

Traditions of Palma Tour

At 9:30 am, we'll meet in front of the Church of Santa Eulalia in Palma de Mallorca. From there, we'll set off on a route to discover city traditions through its most typical shops

First, we'll stop at the Can Joan de S’Aigo chocolate shop, an icon of the Balearic capital that has been around for more than three centuries. In fact, it's one of the oldest chocolate shops in Europe! Here you'll learn the history of the famous 'pans de neu,' precursors of today's ice cream, and be introduced to one of its most characteristic pastries: 'ensaimadas con chocolate.'

Next, we'll head to La Industrial, a local toy store founded in 1929 where you can find toys that would catch even a collector's eye. Then we'll move on to La Pajarita. This chocolate shop and grocery store opened its doors in the 19th century and is famous for its exclusive products.

Then, we'll walk to Fornet de la Soca, where master confectioner Tomeu Arbona will reveal some of the secrets of his recipes and how the idea of this business came about. Afterward, our guide will take us to Forn de la Glòria to learn the ins and outs of making bread and the most exquisite sweets. Legend has it that this bakery already existed in the time of King James II!

At 12 pm, we'll arrive at Plaza de las Atarazanas and the tour will finish.
