Since Roman times, the Sa Granja country estate or ‘possessió’ in the mountains has had a natural spring – an important asset on this island.
The estate was the home of Cistercian monks until the mid-15th century, then became a private house. It’s open to the public for visits and is a great place to see traditional rural crafts in action, taste local products, and enjoy demonstrations of Mallorcan music and dance.
Visit the gardens, the house – with its attractive breezy loggia – workrooms, cellars, and the rather creepy torture chamber!
There are places to eat – or take a picnic to enjoy in the extensive grounds.
