The Finca Raixa, one the many gems of the Sierra de Tramuntana.
Majorca is an island full of possibilities, a place to visit year after year and always find something new to discover, a spot where to get lost. The Sierra de Tramuntana is, without doubt, one of the best examples of the rich diversity of this island in the Mediterranean and, within it, unique spaces such as Finca Raixa, that make a very special destination.
Recently opened to the public, Finca Raixa, located in the municipality of Bunyola,it is one of the most significant cultural heritage sites in Majorca. Its islamic roots can be observed in what is considered the most beautiful gardens in Majorca: outdoors and exquisitely taken care for, it offers a striking contrast with the mountain enclave where they are located.
The Raixa finca is an old Majorcan manor house, an aristocratic house with a classic style and italian reminiscences that have been declared a cultural Heritage site and is integrated in the Serra de de Tramuntana, a World Heritage Site.
Walking “al fresco” around the gardens is one of the most complete nature and relax proposals that can be made in Majorca. Its access is opened to the public, although the number of visitors is limited to avoid overcrowding and deterioration.
Very close, in the same locality of Bunyola you can find other gardens with charm, the well known Jardines de Alfabia, that can also be covered by foot.
At Garden Hotels, we provide you with extensive information of the most important places that all travellers must visit in Majorca. Whether you choose a hotel in Playa de Muro or a hotel in Cala Millor, you will always have the possibility to travel the entire island and discover its most attractive places. Ask at our reception desk, our staff will be delighted to help you.
