Holidays in historic towns and villages in Mallorca

Mallorca’s history is typical of a Mediterranean island, and its historic towns and villages have been shaped by successive waves of invaders. The earliest remains are Bronze Age megaliths, but it was the 8th-century arrival of Arabs and their ingenious irrigation systems that had the greatest impact, changing the landscape so significantly that a vast area now enjoys protected UNESCO World Heritage status.

For many travellers seeking a holiday near an historic town or village in Mallorca, Pollença is the answer, with its cobbled streets, attractive squares, imposing 17th- and 18th-century architecture and a unique traditional textile factory.

A dash of history with your family holiday

Pollença town and the surrounding area offers plenty for lively little ones to explore. Burn off some energy tackling the 365 Calvary Steps up to a small chapel and enjoy the stunning views from the top. Pollença takes its name from the Roman site known as Pollentia, a few kilometres away near Alcúdia town. With the remains of a theatre, forum and residences, there’s plenty see, and if you visit in the early evening you could combine it with a walk on the top of the 14th-century city walls of Alcúdia and dinner in the atmospheric old town.

The rugged romance of north-west Mallorca

For couples looking for an active break with a sprinkling of culture, the bewitching little towns of Valdemossa and Deià beckon. Their beauty has attracted writers, artists and musicians inspired by honey-coloured houses built into hillside terraces that date back over 1,000 years. The landscape is UNESCO protected, and crossed by heritage walking trails that detail the key historical points. And once you’ve put the miles in, you can reward yourself in one of the many artisan food shops and speciality restaurants in and around Valdemossa, Deià and sleepy Fornalutx.
