  • Very nice cathedral in the middle of Mallorca. The road leading to the spot is one of the most beautiful I've ever been driven. The cathedral itself is a nice place for all tourists.
  • We stayed in the place for 3 nights in a small apartment for 3. The place is fantastic, quite, fresh and culturally exciting with animals around and a lot of vegetation. From here you can visit many things and beaches. As an architect though I say that the authenticity of the place in the renovation works has been partly lost. The minimarket Is very scarce, but on the opposite there is a wonderful pool closed to a small botanic garden that may be better maintained. Recommend
