La Granja, Esporles

(3.7/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Perched in the foothills of the Tramontana mountains, La Granja is a working 17th-century farm and estate. The site passed through the hands of the Romans, Moors, feudal Christians, and the Cisterian monks before its acquisition by its current owners, the Fortuny family. Today, it exists as a living museum of traditional Mallorcan culture and craftsmanship. Inside, you will find carefully preserved antique furnishings and craftsmen at work in trades such as blacksmithing, Spanish grasswork, and tanning. A stroll through the gardens reveals elm trees, fragrant rosemary, a 9.1 m (30 ft) natural spring, and local animals like the Mallorca goat and black pig. Don't forget to sample the traditional Mallorcan fig bread, bunnelos, and fig and apricot jams made on site. To visit La Granja on your trip to Esporles, use our Esporles vacation generator.

  • La Granja is a beautiful Mallorcan mansion which the oldest parts date from the 12th century. The botanical gardens with ponds and beautiful Fountain are romantic-beautiful. The House accommodates a sort of museum of folklore that gives a good idea of how in the past on Mallorca lived and worked. The buildings have kept their original elegance, despite several alterations. The torture chamber in the cellars is a concession to the sensationalism of the tourists, already were die kelders indeed once used by the Inquisition! Well worth the visit!
