Banyalbufar, a municipality located in the south-western part of the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range, between the terms of Estellencs, Esporles and Valldemossa, has a population of around 500.
Its landscape is characterised by the surrounding mountains, its spectacular agricultural terraces and steep coast.
The origins of Banyalbufar have been traced back to the farmhouse erected in the 10th century under the name Banyalbahar, a Moslem place name that means “built next to the sea”.
Traditionally dedicated to cattle raising, shing and agriculture, this house was particularly noteworthy due to the production of cluster tomatoes and wine from Malvasía. It is currently under renovation.
Worth highlighting are the “Torre des Verger” tower, the old “Sa Baronía” palace with its interior courtyard and a 17th-century defence tower.
