This tour delves into Mallorca's intriguing history, beginning in an area of the island called Pla de Sant Jordi, or Saint Jordi's Plain, where windmills still dot the landscape. Here, Mallorca's rich agricultural customs live on at Els Calderers, an 18th century manor house, which the owners have graciously opened to the public in an effort to share the traditions of Mallorca.
Stroll at your leisure through the impressive Great Hall, Hunting Room, kitchen, and into the wine cellar, where you may sample some locally produced vintages. "Mi casa es su casa" has never rung so true.
Your will next visit the Bellver Castle, which was constructed in the early 1300s, during the reign of Jaime I of Mallorca. It is the only circular Gothic castle in Europe with a double gallery of arches inside the central patio. The castle also affords some marvelous views of Palma.
Afterwards, you'll rejoin your coach and travel back to the pier.
