Fornalutx Sehenwertes


The main attraction of the city is without doubt the village itself. The possibility of walking through its narrow streets, admiring its architecture and traditional beauty, is fascinating and one of the reasons why it attracts thousands of tourists every year.

One of the most outstanding buildings is the town hall, which has a 17th century defence tower. The church is another place we can visit, as it is a unique combination of its original Gothic features and the later Baroque style reforms.

The main square is the Plaza de España, surrounded by cafés and shops. Next to the square is the church of Fornalutx, whose origins date back to the 13th century. Around the church, in the higher part of the village, are the most picturesque streets.
