Junipero Serra - the Mission Trail

Culture and History tour in Palma de Majorca

Tour Price : on request Duration : 8 Hours or 4 hours tour Languages: Spanish, English, Italian, German

Father Junipero Serra is a very famous figure in Palma da Mallorca. He is the one who founded the very first missions in California. Father Junipero Serra was a Franciscan priest from Spain, Palma da Mallorca. It is worth noting that in the 20th century he was beatified by Pope John Paul II.  

You will have a unique opportunity to explore the hometown of such a legendary figure. It is worth noting that this private tour in Spain is one of the most popular. During the tour you will learn a lot about the life of Father Junipero Serra. Did you know that he was born and brought up in a common farmer’s house? His family possessed only this two-storeyed stone house, and a mule. The entrance of their house was wide enough so they could take their mule with them into the house, when it was too cold outside. Down the street you will find the parish church where the famous Franciscan priest was baptized. Among all the private tours in Spain this one attracts first and foremost religious people, who are interested in legendary religious figures.

As your private guide in Palma da Majorca I will definitely advice you to take a look at the special museum, dedicated to Father Junipero Serra. This way you will have an opportunity to learn all his biography from his childhood to his death. Moreover you will see some of his belongings. Private guides in Spain usually include in the itinerary the convent of San Francisco. It is the place where the legendary Spanish Franciscan priest got his education.  Our last destination will be the monastery at the hilltop shrine called Sanctuario de Cura. It is believed that father Junipero Serra spent his very last day there.

During several hours you will explore the monastery and its territory. By the way, this monastery is also famous for its remarkable, breath-taking view of the island.
