Trip Planner Europe  /  Spain  /  Balearic Islands  /  Majorca  /  Fornalutx
Fornalutx is a mountainous municipality and village on Majorca (Mallorca), one of the Balearic Islands, in Spain. The nearest town is Sóller, which can be reached by foot via a series of pathways, and the hamlet of Binibassi. Surrounding mountains include the Alfabia Mountains and the Els Cornadors. Catalan is the most popular local language—however, all residents speak Castilian Spanish as well. Fornalutx covers an area of 19.5 km² and as of 2008 had 469 inhabitants.The villageThe centre of Fornalutx is the Plaça d'Espanya, surrounded by cafés and a general store. Overlooking the square (on a higher level reached by steps) is the church, which has a large clock on its façade. Just down the street is the Panaderia de Fornalutx (the local bakery), and on the road leading out of the town several restaurants. The old tower at the east side of the village is also used as the ajuntament (town hall), and just a few houses away from it is the public washing house. The latter has an open loggia at its front with a long bath of water (channelled here in open stone culverts alongside the roads coming down from the hills) and a rail above it where locals leave their clothes to be washed or to wash themselves.The architecture of the village is of stone and red roof tiles, with most buildings' windows also having green painted wooden shutters. The stone façades on the majority of these houses have been exposed in recent years by removing the original render to give the buildings a more rustic appearance than was originally the case. Built on different levels, many of the higher streets are pedestrianised and cobbled, with grassy paths leading off into the orchards and farms to the north. The dominant large plants in the area are orange trees, lemon trees and cacti. Thousands of house sparrows flit around the area and sheep graze in the surrounding orchards. Higher up, there are stunning olive groves with some trees more than a thousand years old.
