The villages in the eastern part of Mallorca are known for their rural essence and for their people's hospitable nature. The air of yesteryear that permeates their narrow streets, and the small craft businesses dotted throughout them, turn a stroll into a pleasant journey back in time. Prehistoric sites, castles, churches, fishermen's dwellings, small coves... a charming route to enjoy during your next break in Mallorca.
All its beautiful streets lead to the castle. An imposing medieval jewel where the people of Gabell protected themselves from the attacks of pirates and buccaneers. From its summit you'll be able to enjoy an exceptional view of the colours and textures that make up the Mallorcan countryside.
Cala Ratjada is known as the old fishing port, which has now been converted into a residential and tourist area. Its terraces and restaurants attract a large number of visitors to the area and it has a great variety in its nightlife.
The neighbouring village of Capdepera can boast that it's home to a large number of artisans from this part of the island. Most of them still offer their products straight from the ovens, workshops and small shops. The main attraction are the "senalles de llata" (palm heart baskets) made from this local plant.
This is one of the nucleuses of Capdepera. Its beach, also known as s'Arenal de sa Mesquida, was declared a Natural Area of Special Interest together with Cala Moltó and Cala Agulla in 1991.
