    Ha sido super interesante participar en este tour! A veces a los residentes también se nos olvida descubrir la historia de donde vivimos!

    Una visita fenomenal. No sabía que Palma tenía tanta historia, y si te la cuenta un guía que sabe, mucho mejor. Volveré a hacer otra visita guiada con vosotros.
