The idyllic town of Sant Llorenç des Cardassar is an oasis of traditional Mallorcan life, away from the more tourism-focused towns on the east coast of the island. Its pretty streets are lined with traditional pastel-painted houses in an ambience of peacefulness and tranquillity. The town offers an excellent hideaway for visitors seeking a more typically Spanish break, a little off the beaten track. However, being within easy reach of resort areas, Sant Llorenç des Cardassar is just a stone’s throw away from the beautiful beaches, amenities, and attractions—ideal for holidaymakers. A stay in this town really does offer the best of both worlds.

Location: Within easy reach of the coast and the island's capital

Sant Llorenç des Cardassar is located close to the east coast of Mallorca, only a short 15-minute drive from the popular resorts of Cala Millor, S’Illot, and Sa Coma with their beautiful sandy beaches and plethora of restaurants, shops, and bars. Also nearby is the small town of Son Carrio, known for its interesting church. The Church of Sant Miquel is a Romanesque building with a rose window thought to have been designed by the architect Antoni Gaudí. Mallorca’s capital Palma and its international airport are located only 60 kilometres to the west of the town and can be reached directly along the main autovia MA-15 road. This makes for a fast and straightforward drive through some of the island’s gorgeous countryside, home to a number of vineyards, fig trees, and almond plantations.

Culture: A relaxed atmosphere around the central square

The Plaça Nova square in the middle of the town is the central hub of activity in this otherwise sleepy neighbourhood. Visitors and locals alike can enjoy relaxed coffees or a bite to eat outside the square’s friendly cafes. It is also in this square that the impressive Parish Church is located. The church displays items such as a Gothic statue of Mary and Jesus, and a Romanesque sculpture of La Mare de Déu Trobada dating back to the 13th century.

Activities: Spanish dining, festivals, and a local market

The church and the main square come alive during religious holidays, such as on the 5th January each year. On this evening, locals celebrate the arrival of the kings of Orient, and gifts are given to the children. The town also has several delightful places to eat, including the acclaimed Es Pati restaurant. Its homely feel and locally sourced ingredients attract visitors from across the island. Every Thursday, from 9.00-13.00, Sant Llorenç des Cardassar hosts a market where it is possible to purchase handcrafts, clothing, fruits, vegetables, clothing, and footwear.
