Esporles: charming village tucked up in the Serra de Tramuntana mountains
Esporles is the typical mountain village you’ll find in Mallorca. A stunning setting in the Serra the Tramuntana mountains gives it part of its charm. The other part is added by the traditional blonde stone architecture. Beautiful!
Esporles is really little, which will make it easy for you to walk all over town in a couple hours. But let us suggest some things to see & do while you’re at it!
To be honest, Esporles is the kind of village that just invites you to take things slow. Walk through the village and sit down at any of the cafés on the main street to have some coffee, a beer or some ‘tapas’. One thing is for sure: just by doing that you will feel like soaking up the spectacular scenery.
If you’re into history, visit ‘La Granja’, the historic mansion and museum which is open to visitors and dates back to Roman times when it was valued for its natural spring waters.
If you’re into hiking, Esporles is one of the starting points to follow the ‘Camí des Correu’, one of Mallorca’s most popular hiking routes, connecting Esporles with the neighbour town of Banyalbufar. 2 hours and 15 minutes of hiking through the Tramuntana mountains. We’re up to it!
Last, but not least, if you’re visiting Esporles in October you’ll run into one of Mallorca’s most well-known fairs: ‘Fira Dolça’, the sweetest one-day festival, taking place the first Sunday in October and inviting you to try some of Mallorca’s most delicious treats such as crespells, bunyols, ensaimadas and more.
