Places in Spain - La Granja Museum (Esporles), Mallorca

 

Located on the outskirts of a tiny village called Esporles, is one of the best excursion destinations in Mallorca, visited by thousands of coaches throughout the year. La Granja is a mansion that dates as far back as the 10th century. It covers 3,000 square metres and is surrounded by 20,000 square metres of unique gardens and hectares of pine clad mountains.

A visit to la Granja will take you at least half a day. The mansion is now a huge museum that not only offers static displays of Mallorca's history but practical demonstrations of age-old crafts and traditions. Twice a week there are horse displays and folk dancing.

There is a set route around the mansion, simply following the arrows. Each step will take you to a different room, set out as it was centuries ago. There are millions of exhibits from old farm implements to furniture, toys and much more. Tickets to La Granja are approx. 7.5 euros per person, payable at the entrance. There is a restaurant, cafe and good, clean toilets. Make sure that as you enter the restaurant you taste all the local foods and wines free of charge. Idealspain visited La Granja in January 2003 and found it to be very interesting, enjoyable and excellent value for money; a rare combination with tourist attractions nowadays.
