NAME: PALMA’S COURTYARDS

In the old city of Palma there are over 50 courtyards which usually are the entrance of stately homes and palaces that belonged to the former Majorcan nobility. Most of these manor houses were built from the VI century to the XVI century. Taking a walk on the old city you can admire the beauty of these courtyards stone paved and which normally have a stone pit to collect rain water and which also are adorned with plants.  These spaces are full of light and silence, and they are considered a place the visitor cannot miss.  In June 2012 the guided tours have been re-launched including visits to the most emblematic courtyards, organized by the city council of Palma and ‘’Mallorca Rutes’’ with the collaboration of the historian Gaspar Valero. The most important courtyards are: Ca’n Bordils, Ca’n Oleo, Ca’n Marqués, Ca’n Alabern, Ca’n Oleza, Ca’n Vivot, Ca’n Oms and Palau March.
