THE Palma Town Hall has launched an ‘Open Doors’ programme with a free guided tour of the building’s main area.
The weekly tour will continue to be offered free of charge each Sunday. Mayor of Palma Jose Hila, who was present for the first tour, explained that the reason for this initiative is so that residents as well as tourists get to know the town hall. He said that for him, the building not only represents the institution and democracy, it also has historical and cultural value.
‘Open Doors’ was considered by the town council to be a success with more than 60 people in attendance. The tour was led by Joan Avellaneda who gave information about the building including its history, the origins of the furniture, the decoration and the rooms that form part of the building.
To be able to attend, it is necessary to sign up in advance by phoning or sending a message to firstname.lastname@example.org. Tours are at 11am and 12pm and can be given in English with notice.
