Bunyola Mallorca. One of the islands most charming and unspoiled places. This beautiful, sleepy, typical Mallorcan village lies at the foot of the stunningly majestic Tramuntana mountain range, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, in the west of this gorgeous Balearic island. Surrounded by woodland of the Alfàbia mountains, this peaceful place has managed to maintain its true Mallorcan authenticity and is one of the few untouched villages, successful in escaping the throws of development that the almighty tourism industry has brought to many other parts of the island. In fact, you won’t even find a hotel in Bunyola Mallorca!
The are a couple of theories surrounding the origin of the village’s name. One is that it is derived from the Arabic translation for small vineyard – ‘bujola’, which shows the connection to the local wine growing in the area. The other is from ‘βουνό’, the Greek word for mountain, linking it to it’s majestic surrounding landscape.
As a typical Majorcan village, there are plenty of local restaurants, bars, cafes and shops, offering everything one needs to stay refreshed on a day to day basis. Its ancient traditional weekly market in the town’s main square every Saturday, sells the finest local island produce. For anything else, its convenient location just 14km north of the Mallorca’s capital city of Palma, affords this destination the best of both worlds – calm and tranquility yet close to all the amenities.
Bunyola Mallorca has enjoyed a prosperous past, still evident today in the streets and particularly in the estates and former manor houses of ‘Sa Font Seca’, ‘Biniforani’ and ‘S’Algueria’.
