  • Nothing earth-shattering, but I think a visit is definitely to do during your stay. Very simple and light.

  • It is the Church that is located in the square in the center of Sant Francesc Xavier. To her they are around bars, restaurant, shops, stores textiles, souvenirs, etc. It is a very tourism-oriented city. The Church is from the year 1726, when the previous Church of Sa Tanca Vella, had made small by the growth of the population. They built this church fortified in order to save the people if necessary from the constant attacks that they received. Very flat façade and unique, with the white color typical of the island.
