Visit the beautiful Neo-Gothic parish church of Esporles
The parish church of Esporles, is among the newest of Mallorca, hence not much information about it.
It was a project started by Gaspar Bennàssar in 1904, and was meant to be a cadeau to Sa Seu. However, the church was never finished, as you can see there is no real bell tower, and the main facade is rather naked.
The church of Sant Pere, is built as a typical basilica, with 1 nave and 12 lateral chapels separated with ribbed vaults and Neo-gothic arches.
Inauguration of the church happened in 1923.
Esporles is famous for several things in Mallorca; the Granja finca, the Maristell monastery and the annual sweets & pastry festival. Esporles is an amazing area for cycling and walking in the Tramuntana, the infrastructure and walking paths are numerous up here, thus it is fairly easy to gain access to the valley. Accommodation in Esporles mainly consist of finca hotels and agroturismos, a unique way of escaping the mass tourism and enjoy some RnR in authentic and scenic surroundings.
