Cultural activities

While staying at Son Brull is all a treat for your body we want to inspire you with some cultural activities to also stimulate your mind on your next stay with us.
Come and discover Majorca and some of its cultural attractions.

Archaeological sites
Majorca is full of archaeological sites for you to discover and relive the past. We want to show you two of them.
The Necròpolis de Cala Sant Vicenç dates back to approximately 1600 BC, the middle bronze age. The necropolis once consisted of 14 caves, now only 7 of them are left. They are considered as one of the most spectacular caves on Majorca and you should definitely not miss them on your next visit to Son Brull.
The ancient roman town in Alcúdia was founded in 123 BC and was the most important roman city in the Balearics. It consists of three parts – the residential area, the forum and the theatre. Don’t forget to also visit the old town of Alcúdia once you are already here.

Old town of Alcúdia
Many people will stop to visit the harbour of Alcúdia and completely forget the main attraction – its old town.
A mere 20 minutes from Son Brull you will find the jewel of Alcúdia, its old town area. Just walking through it you will feel transported back to ancient times and once you go up the old city wall you will have fantastic views of the city, the Serra de Tramuntana and the harbour. Tuesdays and Sundays you can enjoy a local market in the old town. Or just explore the city and its shops and restaurants yourself. Every corner is full of little wonders.

Castles & Ruins
The Castell d’Alaró is located at 815m on top of a hill in Alaró and served once as defense and protection of the island. The walk up to the castle already gives you breathtaking views – don’t forget to take them in on your way up. “The journey is the destination” really counts here. Once you arrive at your destination the only thing that matters is taking in the view, discover the castle and take a break in its restaurant with typical Majorcan food.
A bit farther away from Son Brull but absolutely worth a visit is the Castell de Bellver in Majorcas capital, Palma. It was built in the 14th century and is the only round castle of Spain. Its name is derived from Catalan for “lovely view” and that is exactly what you will get. A 360-degree panorama that includes the harbour of Palma and the beautiful Serra de Tramuntana.

Religious Buildings
In the Serra de Tramuntana you will find a former monastery and Majorcas most sacred site – Lluc Sanctuary. It was founded in the 13th century and is a place closely associated with tranquility, nature and prayer. The Sanctuary is also very famous with hikers, as many routes start from Lluc.
The Royal Carthusian Monastery is located in Valldemossa and was for one winter home to Chopin. It was originally a royal residence until monks occupied the building. Now you can visit parts which are transformed in a museum, the old pharmacy and the old library.
And while talking about religious buildings don’t forget to visit the cathedral of Majorca – La Seu. One of Majorcas most famous landmarks, in Palma.

After these exciting and stimulating cultural visits it is time to give your body a treat. Come back to Son Brull and enjoy its spa and restaurant to the fullest.
