Places in The Southeast of The Interior
Montuïri & Around
Montuïri, on a sharp ridge 8km northeast of Randa on the Ma5017, is known for its apricots. That very colour infuses the place with a soft glow in the early morning. The sandstone Església de Sant Bartomeu dominates Plaça Major, through which runs Carrer Major, graced by the occasional mansion and bar.
Petra's charms aren’t immediately apparent, but stay a while and its long, straight and narrow streets and stone houses will quickly grow on you. With an in-town winery, a couple of terrific places to eat and an intriguing museum, it’s a low-key place where you'll be pleased you lingered longer than planned.
Centred on a Gothic church, the Església de Sant Pere i Sant Pau, this quiet farming community kicks up its heels for the Festes de Sant Honorat (16 January) and the Festa de Sant Jaume (25 July). On both occasions, cossiers dance for an appreciative local audience. The origins of the cossiers and their dances are disputed.
