Cala d´Or Monuments

The municipality of Santanyí is rich in archaeological constructions. Some important remains of the life of the first inhabitants of Mallorca can be seen throughout the municipality and visiting them is very educational.

The largest towers in the municipality are: that of En Beu, at Cala Figuera; Torre Nova de sa Roca Fesa, at Cala Santanyí; and Torre d'en Bassa, at Portopetro. The last two date from the 17th century, while construction of the first began in 1569.

In Santanyí, you can find artificial and natural caves, tombs and even walled villages. The most important are Sa Talaia Grossa, a walled village near to the Drac cave, with a freshwater lake inside that was used for water supplies by the prehistoric communities.
