Ca’n Picafort proudly boasts the largest number of archeological sites on the island of Majorca, with over 150 officially-recognised spots. The majority of these breathtaking historical locations date back to Roman times, but there are many traces of the island’s medieval history in Ca’n Picafort, too. Even late deals to Majorca can take you to some of the earliest known buildings on the island.
Just 20 minutes from Son Baulo beach is the incredible Son Real Necropolis. Also known as the ‘Cemetery of the Pheonicians’, Son Real is a maze of ancient structures which sit spookily by the sea, with the tide lapping at their feet. As you pick your way around them you will experience the frightening beauty of these underground tombs, built all the way back in the Iron Age.
For the true culture vulture, the Parish Church in Santa Margalida dates back to the 16th century, but is built on the site of the original 13th century structure.
In Ca’n Picafort the entertainment is mostly kept to the hotels and apartments. However, there are two nightclubs in the town that attract both locals and tourists to meet and mingle. If it’s a hearty meal and a nightcap that you’re after, then look no further than the array of restaurants and bars on the seafront. Stylish, modern eateries sit beside traditional tapas taverns.
All this and more is available to anyone visiting this beautiful resort in the north of the island. Easily reachable from the airport, and well connected to neighbouring beaches, towns, and villages, you’ll be free to explore this special corner of Majorca.
