History of Mallorca (Majorca) in a nutshell (22 mins) A journey through the history of Palma from the first known human settlement to the present day. Centred around a discussion of the arrival, dominance, effect and eventual demise of the four main cultural periods (Talayotic, Roman, Arab and Christian) it serves as an excellent basis for the guide, helping to put the historical sites you will visit, in a more chronological order.
It also includes some light-hearted anecdotes few people know about the island and its people! Go to the home page to listen to an extract from this chapter.
Map Point 1 - Parc De La Mar & Las Murallas (The city walls), (6 mins) This is where the actual walking tour begins. I talk about the evolution of the park, including what was there before, what was its intended function and the trials and tribulations of building it. There is also a brief discussion of the origin of the city walls and how they have left their mark on the city.
