The little town Algaida is situated in the fertile central plains, the “Pla de Mallorca”, at the foot of the Puig de Randa, 20 km east of Palma.
Algaida – small but nice and authentic
The small town (about 4200 inhabitants), among the rolling hills with fertile fields, almond groves and pine forests, has some old mill towers and a gothic church from the 14th / 15th century.
The Marketplace – centerpiece and meeting place of a Majorcan village
Around the marketplace there are several cafes and shops. On Friday morning the farmers offer everything from fresh fruit to vegetables, locally of course.
A nice walk leads through shady forest to the small “Ermita de la Pau”, the oldest evidence of Christianity in Mallorca. An idyllic place, away from the village, where you can enjoy the magic of the undisturbed environment. The Peter and Paul Church was built in the 13th century by the Catalan conquerors with a portal in Roman-Byzantine style.
