Charles of the House Habsburg was the King of Spain and the Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire in the 16th century. He was the most powerful man of his time and not many governors in history have ruled over as such a vast territory as he did. However, our society barely knows the Emperor paid a visit to our island in 1541. Join me at this tour and discover why the man called "The Caesar" came to Palma! We will follow the very same steps of the monarch in town.
Don't miss it!
We will reproduce precisely the official reception given to the Emperor Charles in the year 1541 by the citizens of Palma, according to the chronicles. We will start at the city's port and we will end nearby the Cathedral. I'm not giving you any more details about this tour since I want you to feel exactly the same way the Emperor did when he stepped on Palma's soil for the first time. Let me amaze you with an epic story full of hilarious moments. The only thing I can tell you in advance is we'll be passing beneath some of the main monuments in town: the Merchant Guild's Headquarters, the Born's Promenade, the Despuig's mansion, the parish church of Saint Nicholas, Palma's Town Hall, the Insular Council, the Balearic Parliament, the Palace of the Almudaina and the Cathedral. At the end of the tour, you will be able to taste some typical Majorcan food and wine in a local restaurant.

Hey, my name is Albert! I am a Bachelor's Degree holder in History and I have been working as a Licensed Tourist Guide for more than two years. I do historical tours around Mallorca and, specially, in its capital: Palma. Since I was a kid my passion has always been History. I am very enthusiastic for Palma because I think my city holds one of the most important monumental sets in Europe: Palma's old town. That's why I'm trying really hard that what I actually love in life be seen by everybody as true profession, not only a hobby. I am proud to say I am getting it so far. History is my life and what I do best is bringing people back to the past through our wonderful heritage. If you ever thought history was a boring thing, I'll be glad to prove that you couldn't be more wrong. I encourage you to join me and you will realize how thrilling is knowing what happenned centuries ago on the very same streets we are walking by today. Full profile ⋅ Leave a Review
