The tiny village of Estellencs Situated within the World Heritage Site of the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range, offers an authentic taste of rural Mallorca.
Estellencs is the village with the lowest population in Mallorca (it has just over 300 residents), but has its charming clean stone streets, historic facades, bright bursts of flowers and sprawling creepers. Estellencs demands little of its visitors, just a few walkers and cyclists are passing by. Its a perfect place for those you want to see a rural Mallorca and to avoid a lot of tourists.
Going through a villige you will see plenty of fig and lemon trees, hear a cock crowing, donkeys braying and a buzz of cicadas. On one side you have the dramatic and changing face of the mountain, on the other, the deep blue Mediterranean sea.
Estellenc is not a busy place and has only a few of cafés and restaurants, plus one small shop. There is a church, San Joan Baptista, which might be closed when you arrive, and a Tower ‘Tem Alemany’, which you might miss as it’s not sign posted. But if you love sea and mountain, don’t let the lack of sites deter you from visiting. The gentle rhythm is just another part of its charm.
