An hour of driving will take you from the airport (Palma de Mallorca) to Capdepera, a village with some 12,000 inhabitants. Only minutes from here, you find beaches and the island’s finest golf courses. Five minutes to Cala Ratjada, ten minutes to Canyamel.
The more rural northeastern coast of Mallorca with its rolling hills and beautiful coves and beaches offers quite a different ambience than the highly developed tourist centers.
More than 700 years ago, the islanders constructed the impressive fortress in order to defend the island against invaders from the sea. On a clear day, one can look across the sea as far as the isle of Menorca. The fortress, el Castillo, is still the main attraction of Capdepera and many visitors from all over the world come just to see this magnificent historic monument.
Visitors who stay awhile in Capdepera will notice a vibrant village life. There is the weekly farmers market on Wednesdays, charming small bars and cafeterias, romantic village streets, the church with its bell tower and the plaza that serves as a meeting place for locals and visitors alike. The colorful village community speaks a mix of languages: Mallorquin, Spanish, German, English, French … The village also features restaurants, a post office, banks, clinics, drugstores, grocery stores, restaurants, sport facilities, a book store and other small shops and everything else that is essential for daily life.
