This is the center of Palma de mallorca with The Passeig del Born with its many barroque houses . The name ´Born´ refers to the jousting tournaments held here. The land this area occupies was formerly a narrow cove where the river of La Riera flowed out to sea. It was at this time (1833) that the sphinxes, popularly known as lions, were put in place.
