La Granja is an excellent way to discover Mallorca's history, and it is a great opportunity to get away from today’s tourist resorts and enjoy a slice of perfectly preserved history.
La Granja, located in Esporles in the south of Mallorca, is well known since the roman times. The Arabs, that dominated the island from the X to the XIII centuries, settled in the area and founded the Alpich farmhouse. Later, when King James I conquered Mallorca, he divided the island in four parts and Count Nunyo Sanç settled in the property. In 1239, Nunyo Sanç gave La Granja to the Cistercian monks who founded a monastery there. Two hundred years later, the monks sold the property to the Vida family who converted it into a manorial house. Later the property passed to the Fortuny family, who finally sold it to Cristòfol Seguí Colom, current owner of the estate.
La Granja is the result of many periods and changes, and it is a mixture of stately and rustic style, because, as well as being used as a residence, it was also an estate dedicated to agricultural production, which at one time had more than a hundred workers.
Nowadays La Granja is open to the public and holds an ethnographic museum and many different wild and domestic animals and birds.
The visit to La Granja includes the historical mansion with its different halls, dining rooms, bedrooms, wine cellar, chapel...; the spectacular gardens with ponds and fountains; sampling of Mallorcan food and demonstrations of traditional dances and ancient handicrafts.
When there is a folklore show (see below), this is also included in the price.
One of the strong points of the visit to La Granja is the chance to sample some typical Mallorcan cooking - the buñuelos, freshly made from a mixture of potato flour and baking powder - various jams, fig bread, sobrasada, cheese, palo (liqueur) and hierbas (an aniseed based liqueur).
