HISTORY

In the Middle Ages Mallorca was visited by many North African pirates, so the construction of several defensive towers was necessary. From a total of 14 towers on the territory of the municipalities of Calvià and Andratx, still 12 are available.

The municipality of Calvia along with Palma, were the two focal points in the conquest of Mallorca in 1229 by King Jaume I, who went ashore in Santa Ponça. In memory of this event, a cross was built on the side, where the monarch has touched the ground first. The annual celebration of the conquest is the greatest cultural and festive events of the community in September.

Centuries ago, many pirates were on the island of Sa Dragonera. Until the 20th century, it were smugglers who hid their goods such as coffee, sugar and tobacco in the caves of Dragonera. Many families visit the island with their children even to look for hiding places. Today you can still find 42 old smugglers caves.

The former inhabitants have been replaced by countless lizards. It is a subspecies of the Balearic Lizard. The exceptionally trustworthy animals are now lured and photographed by tourists with fruit.

There are almost daily the opportunity by boat to visit the island Dragonera and explore.
