Raixa

The estate of Raixa is an historic and beautiful estate located at the base of the Serra de Tramuntana centered around an Italian-style castle.

The gardens that surround it, its monumental staircase, and the panoramic views make it an essential place to visit

Greek Temple at Raixa

The villa and gardens of Raixa, along with its magnificent gardens, was initially an 16th Centuryt Moorish farm. At the turn of the 18th century, Cardinal Despuig, one of the key figures in the Enlightenment, built the grand estate and gardens which incorporate elements of Italian palazzo as well as Greek temples and Asian-influenced structures

Santa Maria del Cami Market

The Santa Maria Market is vibrant and busy most every Sunday. There are a wide range of clothing, shoe, and children’s toy, and flower/plant vendors in the central open air market space. There also also many vendors selling locally-grown fresh fruits and vegetables as well as other food vendors.

Surrounding the market square there are restaurants and places to drink. Most interesting are the wine bars and tasting rooms that serve wines from the local grape growers.

Nearby is the Consell Market which offers a distinctly different range of products – more antiques and unique home decoration. So its easy to visit both markets of a pleasant Sunday morning.

The Sunday Market opens at 8 am and runs to 2 pm. Open Year-Round
