|This village, considered the heart of the Serra de Tramuntana, stands out for having the largest orange grove in Mallorca. |
Both the old town of Sóller, with its fascinating tram, and its dynamic port are places that are worth enjoying for the beauty of their landscapes, characterized by typically Mediterranean vegetation and citrus trees.
Characterized by typically Mediterranean vegetation and citrus orchards, Sóller Valley is a world of magic that looks as if invented by a prodigious mind. Located between Deia and Fornalutx, it is surrounded by unique natural corners, such as Puig Major and the Biniaraix ravine.
Its lands are the heart of the Serra de Tramuntana. Just walk up to the viewpoints, stroll through the pine and orange groves that surround the village and descend to the port to gain such a view of the mountains of Mallorca as you will find nowhere else.
In the centre of the town of Sóller you will find a beautiful square with a church, several museums and noble buildings, markets and the typical small houses scattered in narrow streets. In the background, orange farms with fruits are used to prepare the best jams on the island.
|Deià, symbol of the Mediterranean|
|This village, grown around Teix mountain, has become a metaphor for the Mediterranean lifestyle. |
Routes on a motorcycle along the Serra de Tramuntana roads, a swim among the rocks, a family meal in a typical house overlooking the sea, its narrow streets, the people and the laughter at sunset all go into the composition of this unforgettable corner that cries out its Mediterranean character.
Being the protagonist of one of the most emblematic summer ads in Spain is as simple as arriving in Deià. The village is the living image of the Mediterranean that we all have in mind: a cove hidden among cliffs, stone houses and terraces providing open views to the sea, young people diving in crystal clear waters, tomato bread and a toast at sunset.
Deià is the epitome of pure Mediterranean feeling. It is a way of life that remains in standby mode during the winter, sheltered by the calm of the mountain, while in summer it stands out as the core of the most refined scene in Mallorca. It is the perfect setting for a romantic dinner and a destination full of possibilities for enjoying during a trip with friends.
Located between Banyalbufar, Valldemossa and Sóller, Deià stands out for the central mountain crowning the town, the Teix, for its gourmet restaurants and for its natural landscape that descends to the sea via a sinuous road between torrents and private farms.
|The talayots of Vilafranca|
|This village of the interior of Mallorca has 14 sites and is the living image of traditional peasant lifestyles. |
Located in the heart of Mallorca, Vilafranca de Bonany is one of those places that make one go back in time. A place where things are done with the affection and patience of yesteryear and where its imposing hamlets (possessió) mark the landscape and daily routines.
There is a place in Mallorca where you can escape from the hustle and bustle of time. A corner full of charm and tradition where what matters most are the small things and life is lived with the calm of those who do not feel any stress or strain. It is called Vilafranca de Bonany and is the symbol of rural Mallorca. The meeting point with the essence of the Mallorca from past centuries.
In this town of Pla de Mallorca – the Plain - , located between Felanitx, Porreres, Petra, Manacor and Sant Joan, you can enjoy the atmosphere of the squares, walk casually through its narrow streets and visit some of the most important Talayotic deposits of Mallorca .
Among the most interesting sites in Vilafranca, mention should be made of the archaeological remains of Sa Moleta, the talayot of Castellot Vell and the talayot of Son Pou Vell. Moreover, in the village you can enjoy an exquisite gastronomy and try their famous melons, grown on their farms.
|The Walls of Palma|
|The area of Dalt Murada, Ses Voltes, the Cathedral and the old town seem to have been taken from a pirate movie. |
You will find this emblematic area of Palma that greets the visitor arriving by sea near the Moll Vell, as happened before. Nowadays, only some of the original walls of Palma still survive and the most important among these is right next to La Seu.
Few cities in the world have a maritime facade such as that which occupies the walls of Palma, right in the area of the Parc de la Mar, Dalt Murada and the Cathedral of Mallorca, La Seu. Few can boast so well preserved an element of historical defence, by which you can walk any day of the year and enjoy the sun with the sea as a permanent witness.
Built and renovated many times over the centuries, the walls that can be visited now only constitute a small part of the great wall that surrounded Palma. Its base is Roman but historians have noted that they were finished by the Arabs around 1115.
One interesting fact is that the area where the promenade, the road and the park are to be found now was once just sea. The beauty of this historic complex plus the versatility of new spaces such as Ses Voltes and the park offer the best viewpoint of the Bay of Palma.
|Camp de Mar, the best medicine|
|Nature and sea create an incomparable destination for one to become reconciled with life, as you can see in the English movie "A Long Way Down," which was shot here. |
The coast of Camp de Mar is a benchmark for brief, relaxing trips to Majorca, hiking excursions on the shores of the Mediterranean and sunsets. A natural area, with all kinds of tourist services and just a short distance from the exclusive and select Port d ‘Andratx.
Camp de Mar is one of the most vital and peaceful coastal areas in Mallorca. A place for escaping from the world around you, looking back on your life, meditating about your challenges, your past and your future. The lost corner of the Mediterranean for one to escape with a group of friends during times of unhappiness, of readiness to leave the vital stress aside and enjoy every single experience.
Camp de Mar is located to the west of Calvià, in the municipality of Andratx; it offers a beautiful beach and is one of the best examples of the professionalism of the hotel service of the island, with all kinds of services oriented towards rest, relaxation and pleasure next to the Mediterranean.
