What to see The town is home to numerous stately houses dating from the 16th and 17th centuries. Two of the best-known are Can Verger and Can Ros. It's also common to see defensive constructions. Good examples are the towers of Cap Andritxol, Cala Figuera, Portals Vells and Sa Parrosa. The popular architecture of Majorca can be seen in Galatzó, Santa Ponça and Son Martí with their agricultural houses and flour ovens. Other interesting sites include the church of Calvià and the shrines of Portals and Pedra Sagrada. In the surrounding area there are a number of archaeological sites to visit. The best conserved are the Alemany funeral mound, Puig de Sa Morisca and Turó de Ses Abelles, with Talayot remains; and Sa Mesquida, from the Roman period. Beaches The best-known areas are Palmanova, Illetas, Portals Nous, Santa Ponsa, Paguera and Magaluf. This last is also very popular with young holiday-makers in pursuit of endless nights of partying. Gastronomy The 'sopas mallorquinas' (cabbage soup), 'pastenagues negres' (made with carrots, chard, assorted sausages, raisins and pine nuts), and lamb seasoned with bay, fennel and garlic are among the typical dishes. The rice dishes and shellfish are also highly recommended. Nature The area has several bird-watching routes.
