Standing where part of the ancient city wall once stood, a promenade that showcases the island's history.

Sagrera Promenade

A lovely seaside walk with a charming story behind it.

Besides being one of the city's most beautiful seaside strolls, with important buildings such as the Maritime Stock Exchange along its length, the Passeig Sagrera also has a rather charming origin. At the beginning of the 20th century, when the area was an empty space where part of the ancient city wall had been demolished years earlier, an architect popular at that time, Gaspar Bennazar, hired more than 200 labourers and on the night of St. John's feast in 1910 managed to build a pleasant esplanade complete with trees, benches and lampposts for the people of Palma to find when they awoke the following morning. Now through the surrounding buildings and sculptures it has evolved into a kind of narrated history of the city, including homages to figures important to the island such as Majorcan writer and philosopher Ramón Llull, and beyond, like Nicaraguan poet Rubén Darío.
