Just south-east of Algaida, on your way to Randa, you will find the Medieval hamlet of Castellitx.
Castellitx was the original hamlet of the area, before Algaida and Randa was even founded. The old chapel that gathered people for services, is still standing here. The temple of Castellitx, was in service up until the 15th century, until the parish Algaida was consolidated and had its new church of Sant Pere and Sant Pau built.
How to get to Castellitx
Algaida is a typical rural area found in the most southern part of the region called “es Pla de Mallorca”, a place where agricultural traditions are still commemorated in the local spirit. Algaida is, however, also a place of great diversity, both in its landscapes and when it comes to the things you can do here. There are a bunch of local points of interest to see such as the parish church of Sant Pere i Sant Pau, the old stone croosses in the streets, the famous Cura sanctuary, the Xina windmill and the medieval chapel of Castellitx built immediately after the Catalan conquest of the island. But there is also the famous Gordiola glass factory and the Modelmon interior design showroom. Algaida also celebrates its traditions several times a year with entertaining festivals in the town, absolutely worth attending for a cultural input.
