La Granja, Esporles

4.0
#7 of 49 in Museums in Majorca
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.

  • We had lifted us to the La Granja visit for a rainy day. Thus, we could not enjoy unfortunately the grounds. But also in the buildings, it was cold, drafty and it smelled very musty. The whole decoration and installation created the impression that for years nothing really is has been maintained. The ensemble of buildings in the middle of the beautiful gardens with plenty of water is obviously still great. And the collection of ancient everyday objects is already pretty good and worth a visit. Proud admission of €15,50 per adult and €9.00 per child is not necessarily right. We were but glad that the cashier accommodating erweise has calculated our children as such and not as an adult.

  • Day 5 of March 2018, take a visit to this fabulous place which is located in the fantastic village of Valldemossa, there are walking distance from the village to the Finca de la Granja. I did all the way, always directed by a guide, I recommend that, if you want to learn, because but not you can find the amount of issues that will go unnoticed otherwise. And see that apart from found in fabulous, as it was self-sufficient in the past instead. Impact me enough. I encourage all here which is long to Mallorca to visit it.

  • La Granja is first a beautiful, mystical place with an ancient source, the all the life that was here through the centuries, ever allowed. We get an in-depth look at the traditional Mallorcan agriculture and culture during the very extensive itinerary through the countless rooms, gardens, courtyards, rooms, vaults, halls and the associated forest and river. Very impressive and varied, if you take the time to do so.
