Costitx was founded back in the early middle ages when it separated from neighbouring village of Sencelles in the beginning of the 1300's.
The area however, has been inhabited by humans since the bronze ages, as the remarkable remains of a temple is evidence for.
Costitx is a very small and sleepy little village on the Mallorcan countryside in the region called es Pla. Mid day siesta is something still in practice here, but if you come in the morning or afternoon, the local bars are occupied by locals who meet to drink their coffee and discuss the world situation.
