We will meet in Plaza Sant Francesc and from that central point we will explore the colorful backstreets of Palma with some decadent buildings, some shop doors, some small walls where we will discover very different Street Art: made by mallorcans, by travelers or by neighbors artists coming from the Peninsula wit completely different techniques, styles, colors, messages, dimensions... For each graffiti we will talk about the artist and we will try to imagine the message behind it. All is right, because all depends on your interpretation: the important thing is to think, have fun and use the fantasy to share our impressions. What can you see behind a hot chocolate cup where there is a boat sinking? A girl very active and her grandmother behind, a big man surrounded by a huge and very long sobrasada all tied around him...what are these artists telling us? what do you want to read and see behind these colorful images? All it is up to you! After some walking we will stop in a bar for a beer and some relaxed time together with the guide and the other travelers. And then we will keep walking a little bit more to discover some other impressive graffiti before ending the tour.

We love our town, its street art, and our local artists. We follow them on Instagram and every time there is a new street art or a new artist on a wall we are curious to discover more about him/her and to reflect about the messages he/she wants to send us. The Street Art is always changing and we love the idea to keep learning about it. We also love to take pictures of it as it is really colorful and artistic.

We will meet in Plaza Sant Francesc. From there we will walk in the Palma center. All the backstreets we will walk thought, are a little bit outside the massive tourism spots so we will get the chance to see Palma from a different perspective embraced by street art. We will walk for 1 hour and a half and we will also stop in a bar for some rest. We will end the tour 10 minutes away from the Cathedral.
Please, arrive few minutes in advance, before the tour starts. You are with other travelers and, in the respect of everybody, the tour will start on time.
