So beautiful, sober and singular are they, that they have drawn the attention of numerous writers and chroniclers who, like Archduke Ludwig Salvator, Jules Verne or Josep Pla, have visited Palma at some time. The patios of the stately homes in the old town have become one of the most attractive and representative elements of the city’s architecture. In olden times neighbours gathered in them, they were where the social life of the city took place, and symbolized the power of each family. This route leads us to the most beautiful patios of the island’s great noble families who lived in the area around the city’s cathedral.
