Fornalutx guide

Accommodation in Fornalutx

Fornalutx offers only a small selection of holiday homes, boutique and petit hotels. Fornalutx is a preserved area, which is why no newer hotels can be built here. Personally, I think that is a great thing, because the authenticity of this area is in fact what makes it so desirable.

A holiday base in Fornalutx, is mainly for you traveling without children.

Things to see around Fornalutx

The brand new asphalted roads that connects Fornalutx to other mountain villages, are ideal for cyclists. They also allow you to better reach activities outside Fornalutx by car.

Hiking is extremely popular up here, simply because the temperatures allow walking all year round. There are hundreds of markd routes, starting from, or passing by Fornalutx, leading you about in the fertile orange valley. There’s also a pilgrimage route starting here, leading to the world famous Santuari de Lluc convent.

If you are here during summertime, a visit to the beach might sound appealing. You can drive for about 10 minutes, and you’ll reach the Port de Sóller beach.

There is a good handful of restaurants and cafeterias, located in the streets of Fornalutx. As Fornalutx is a tourist attraction itself, it’s difficult to tell if there’s something here that is specially compiling to a certain audience. Nothing bad said, I have had nothing but good dining experiences in Fornalutx, and luckily I am not a food critic, just a food lover.

The best thing about eating in Fornalutx, is the views and atmosphere here. The cafeterias located in the center square, offer an intense buzz of a typical Spanish village life. In the outskirts of town, there is a few restaurants placed on the terraces looking over the valley.

Fornalutx offers one of the most beautiful places in Mallorca, actually in all of Spain. Fornalutx has been awarded 3rd most beautiful village in Spain several times.

The small village, made of rustic stone houses, is located in a fertile valley where oranges and lemons grow all year round, leaving a very special scenic atmosphere of freshness.

Fornalutx, is situated in a warm valley not far from Sóller.

Infographic about Tramuntana region of Mallorca

The Tramuntana region

Tramuntana is both the name of the UNESCO protected mountain range that runs from south to north, as well as the name of the group of municipalities located in or close to these mountains.

When talking about Tramuntana in context of the mountain range, it is referred to as "Serra de Tramuntana", and when talking about the region, it is referred to simply as "Tramuntana".

The largest municipalities of the Tramuntana region, are Calviá and Andratx in the south and Pollenca in the north. The mountain range actually has its roots south of Malagá in Andalusiá.

The Serra de Tramuntana covers a surface of more than 30,000 hectares of landscape in Mallorca. The two main factors that make these mountains so unique, are the dry stone constructions and the hydraulic watering systems evidencing early day farming techniques. In almost any local area of the Tramuntana you travel, you will discover some of these very unique features which contributes to the picturesque settings.
