At Visit My Mallorca our specialty is the unknown Mallorca, off the beaten path, away from mass tourism sites. Let us assist you in creating long lasting memories of island life. We concentrate on a local experience emphasizing the people, the food, and the smaller places to find hidden treasures which create unique experiences and powerful interactions.
While the entire island of Mallorca rates as a gorgeous backdrop for films, our 3-hour walking tour will concentrate on the locations used in film, popular television series and commercials within the capital city of Palma. Palma has served as a background for films for well over a century when the world’s first color travelogue was filmed here in the early 20th century. In 1913, an Italian film called The Secret of the Ring, became the first film with a plot to be filmed on Mallorca. Since then Mallorca has been used in hundreds of well-known as well as less popular films, series and commercials.
The 2016 British-USA production of the miniseries The Night Manager left its mark on Mallorca. In Palma, a variety of locations were used as backdrops which, as if by magic, became an Istanbul hotel or a restaurant in Madrid. The 2019 British daytime drama The Mallorca Files has brought the island priceless publicity, attracting over 2 million viewers and featuring many locations in Palma.
In 1950 the black and white film Black Jack, became the first Hispanic-North American co-production. The presence of actors George Sanders, Patricia Roc, Agnes Moorehead and a young Lola Flores on the streets of Palma created such a high expectation, that the shooting of this film about drug smugglers became a challenging task. This era also brought about the glamour of premieres, sometimes with the presence of the actors and actresses sending the inhabitants of the city quite mad. In 1962, a bikini worn by Hollywood star Elke Sommer in the film Bahia de Palma caused a scandal with the censors of the period becoming the first time a bikini was worn in a Spanish film.
