Visit Porto Cristo
in Mallorca

Its name dates back to the Catalan conquest of the island in the year 1260, with its meaning Port of Christ. Legend tells that one morning a boat drifting away which contained a crucifix was found on the beach. The villagers saw it as a sign and named the village Porto Cristo. Porto Cristo is also the only village in Mallorca that witnessed Spanish civil war battle when it was recaptured by republican troops in 1936. Today, Porto Cristo still has the charm of its traditional origins, with a charming seafront promenade.

Beach and Seafront promenade

The promenade has a cosmopolitan way of being. We recommend you to
walk along the stretch and discover its beautiful landscape that surrounds it
and discover the beach, which is sheltered by a rocky wall and transparent
and calm waters, an ideal combination for a dip in the sea.

Coves blanques

One of the places of interest is a set of caves at the end of the beach at sea level. These caves were the first to be lived in the whole of this small island
in 1877. Also known as the cave of «Patro Pelat»; named after the family that
 first lived there.

Paseo de la sirena

It is a must see space due to its privileged location in front of Porto Cristo beach. Its name is due to a beautiful sculpture that was demolished after the
civil war. In 1988, in commemoration of the century of the founding of the
island, the siren was installed, created by the sculptor Pere Pujol.
On Sundays the Local market uses the space, where you can shop here for
local products.
