Culture and Customs

Majorca and the Balearic Islands have historically been a strategic site located in the Mediterranean sea, whereby innumerable civilizations have settled throughout history. The selection of farmhotels in Majorca of Finca Turismo offers you the best of the culture and traditions in Mallorca. You will be surprised when visiting ancient Palaeolithic sites that date more than 3.000 years of age, or discovering how the Phoenicians and Romans left their mark on their day in a place that felt like theirs. In that sense, it is enough to look at how some olive trees in the Tramuntana mountain range, brought by Phoenicians at that time, they still remain today majestic and millenary as an indelible mark of time. Centuries later, the personality of the Majorcan people was brewed on continuous invasion attempts by Moorish pirates, who had always seen the land as an important geo- strategic settlement. The Majorcan character cannot be understood without the interpretation of its landscapes with windmills and cultivated fields crowned by the majestic Tramontana Mountain range, and native breeds like the black pig, or the Majorcan red sheep. Breeds that, on its day, played a lead role in the self- sufficiency and food sovereignty of these islands.
