Majorca is usually synonymous with coves and beaches with crystal-clear waters. However, this is not the only thing this island has to offer. Majorca is also home to some of the most beautiful villages in Spain. Would you like to know which ones they are?
The most beautiful villages in Majorca
This is the most charming village in Mallorca.
If it were not for the exorbitant price of its houses, I am sure that more than one would choose it as a place to live. Furthermore, we must not forget that this is home to the best coca de patata in the world, one of the typical Mallorcan products that you must try.
Things to do and see in Valldemossa:
- Stroll through its streets. One of the most beautiful is Calle Rectoria.
- Taste the coca de patata in Can Molinas – accompany it with a hot chocolate 😋.
- Look out over Valldemossa from one of its viewpoints.
- Visit the King Juan Carlos gardens.
- Visit the Frédéric Chopin Museum, the Royal Carthusian Monastery of Valldemossa or the Church of San Bartomeu.
- Eat a pa amb oli at Quitapenas Valldemossa, one of the best places to eat here.
Despite being very, very small, it has a mesmerising charm. It has been declared one of the most beautiful villages in Spain. I recommend getting lost in its streets.
As well as being one of the prettiest villages to visit in Mallorca, Deiá has a beautiful cove that I highly recommend you visit.
The best way to explore Deiá is by getting lost in its narrow streets, just like in the rest of the villages. Its Mallorcan stone houses, its photogenic doors and its viewpoints will make you fall in love with it. And if they don’t, its cove undoubtedly will.
Ca’s Patro March is the restaurant in this tiny cove. It has unique views, delicious food and is the perfect place to watch the sunset.
Very close to Cala Deiá is Sa Foradada, a unique place on the island. Here you will find one of the best places to watch the sunset in Majorca. There is a viewpoint – almost always full of people in summer – and several restaurants.
What to see and do in Deiá
- Stroll around the village of Deiá.
- Visit its cove.
- Eat at Ca’s Patro March.
- Watch the sunset at Sa Foradada.
Sóller is one of the Mallorcans’ favourite villages. Well, I correct, more than the village, its port. It is ideal for strolling and having a drink in peace and quiet.
Its church shares its name with Valldemosa, the church of San Bartomeu. It is Sóller’s most emblematic building, and one of its best-known sights (the Sóller train with the church in the background).
The Sóller train runs between Palma-Sóller-Port de Sóller. It is one of the great attractions of this beautiful Mallorcan town. If you are planning to take the Sóller train and visit Sa Calobra, I recommend you take a look at this excursion from Palma.
Its port is one of the most charming areas of the island. It is perfect for a day at the beach, or simply to stroll, have dinner or watch the sunset.
You can’t leave Sóller without drinking an orange juice or ordering one of its orange ice creams. The orange is Sóller’s star product.
What to see and do in Sóller
- Wander through its streets.
Church of San Bartomeu.
- Order an orange juice or orange ice cream.
- Watch the train cross the church square.
- Visit Sóller station.
- Board the Sóller train.
- Stroll around the Port of Sóller.
- Watching the sunset from the sea.
This is one of the most beautiful villages in Majorca, and in Spain. It is very close to one of the best beaches in Mallorca, Formentor, and has stairs that are a real ordeal.
That’s not just me saying it, that’s its real name. 365 steps, each one for each day of the year, climb up to what is known as Mount Calvary. The climb is well worth it, it has incredible views of Pollença!
What to see and do in Pollença
- Climb the 365 stairs to Mount Calvario
- Visit the Plaza Mayor and the Plaza de la Almoina and Fuente del Gallo.
- Get lost in its streets
Alcúdia is considered one of the most beautiful villages in Spain.
It is characterised by being a walled town. Its construction dates back to the 13th century, and today you can walk along them to move from one end of the town to the other.
On Tuesdays and Sundays the weekly market of Alcúdia takes place, one of the largest on the island. Textiles, handicrafts and local products are what you will find here. Personally, what impressed me most about the Alcúdia market was how good the food looked, from giant strawberries to various types of fuets with different spices.
Very close to Alcúdia, in Playa de Muro, is one of the best places to eat in Mallorca, the restaurant Gust. Highly recommended!
What to see and do in Alcúdia
- Walk along its walls.
- Photograph every corner of Alcúdia.
- Visit its weekly market.
- Eat at Gust.
