Es Taller

Few people go to arguably Mallorca’s prettiest medieval town expecting to stumble upon an automotive workshop converted into a slow-food restaurant, run by an Argentine snowboarder and surfer-turned chef. But that’s exactly what you’ll find at Es Taller in Valldemossa.

Ca na Toneta

Slow-food pioneer Maria Solivellas has set a high standard for the local, organic food movement and it is little wonder that her Ca na Toneta is viewed as a reference for slow food in the Balearics, as well as in Spain. Don’t come here expecting ostentatious fine dining, this chef believes in the quality of her produce and is not afraid to let the ingredients do the talking.

Ge dig ut på vandring

Alla som gillar att vara ute i naturen kommer att älska att vandra eller cykla på Via Verde (den gröna vägen), en gammal järnväg som nyligen förvandlats till en led för vandrare och cyklister. Sträckan, som är 29 km lång, korsar landsbygden på södra Mallorca, mellan städerna Manacor och Artà.

Son Naava

På Mallorca produceras världens kanske bästa olivolja och på Son Naava hittar man öns kanske finaste produkter. Lämna inte ön utan att ha köpt en flaska ekologisk extra virgin olivolja framställd av Arbequina-oliver.
