December 2018 | Места | Mallorca

Tradition and modernity co-exist in this municipality which lives out its culture and protects its nature to the full. On the coast, a string of beautiful beaches.

Throughout the year, Artà enjoys a wealth of cultural activity thanks to the presence of its theatre, which has an excellent programme, and the workshops of artisans who display and sell their work. In summer, the more central streets unfurl a varied range of bars and restaurants, becoming one of the best places in the region for enjoying the night. It also concentrates a significant amount of architectural heritage: on a promontory, one can see the Almudaina, a walled ensemble that includes the oratory of Sant Salvador, accessed by 180 steps. And all around the historic centre there are old ancestral homes, some of them built by indianos, or returned emigrants who made their fortune in America. 

Walking enthusiasts from all over the world travel along the GR-222, a long-distance trail that links the Serra de Llevant mountains to the Lluc Sanctuary, in the heart of the Serra de Tramuntana. Of the beaches, the most outstanding are those of Sa Canova, Cala Es Matzoc and Cala Estreta, as well as those closer to the small tourist town of Colònia de Sant Pere, which has a family-friendly atmosphere.
