All the streets make their way up to the castle: an impressive medieval jewel which once protected the village from pirates and corsair attacks. From the top of the castle you can take in the views of colours and textures, which form the Majorcan landscape.
Cala Rajada is known as an old fishing harbour, which today has been converted into a residential and tourist area. Its terraces and restaurants gather a considerable part of this area's visitors, who can also enjoy the nightlife at Cala Rajada, which is worth experiencing.
The neighbouring village of Capdepera boasts a significant number of artisans on this area of the island. Most of them still offer their products from ovens in workshops and small shops. The biggest attraction is "senalles of llata" (fan palm baskets), made from local palm trees.
It is one of the urban centres of Capdepera. The beach, also known as s'Arenal de sa Mesquida, was declared along with Cala Moltó and Cala Agulla as a "Natural Area of Special Interest" in 1991 by the Parliament of the Balearic Islands.
