Directions to La Granja
La Granja has been at the heart of Mallorcan life since the 10th century, and today the estate is the mellow result of development over many periods and cultural changes. Located a short distance west of the village of Esporles, in the foothills of the Tramuntana mountains, La Granja is a living display of Mallorcan customs and agricultural activities in times past.
There's plenty to see during your visit - you can tour the mansion buildings and visit the period rooms, including the dungeon and torture chamber, or take a stroll in the extensive gardens, with their ponds and fountains. The water source here was valued in Roman times, and the natural spring continues to flow to this day. Don't miss the ancient yew tree, which is estimated to be a thousand years old. You'll also see a good selection of typical farm animals including the famous Mallorcan black pig, and you are also likely to come across a wide range of native birdlife, possibly including the black vulture.
A very wide range of handicrafts are kept alive at La Granja, using traditional methods and tools. There's a blacksmith's shop, a wood turner and carpenters workshop, candlemaking, pottery, weaving and lacemaking, spanish grasswork and handmade shoes and sandals.
Apart from the live craftwork, and displays of old farming tools and methods, there are also demonstrations of traditional Mallorcan music and folk dances performed in period dress. Gastronomy also has its place and you can enjoy free tastings of Mallorcan food products.
The La Granja restaurant is open every day and offers a wide variety of dishes.
