Municipality information Andratx

The municipality of Andratx is situated at the western end of Majorca, where the Serra de Tramuntana has the lowest mountains (Moleta de s'Esclop, 928 metres) and the coast is characterized by the small coves and high cliffs (up to 300 metres high), with valleys in the interior. The origin of the name is uncertain (four possibilities, celtic, arab, latin or catalan).

The big ecologic richness of this territory explains that 95 percent of the extension is protected by law, with sa Dragonera, the small island with the biggest extension of the Balearic Islands (2,88 hectares, 3,7 kilometres long, na Pòpia, a hill of 353 metres and natural reserve since 1995), la Trapa (Zona de Especial Protección para las Aves) and the agricultural valleys of Andratx, s'Arracó and Camp de Mar (Áreas Naturales de Interés Paisajístico).

The coastal area in rich in very old and medieval shipwrecks. King Jaume I d'Aragó and his troop anchored between sa Dragonera and Sant Elm on the 7th of December 1229, three days before conquering Majorca. Between the 15th and the 17th centuries it suffered pirate attacks. Port d'Andratx was the most important Spanish port infrastructure in the 19th century, for the transport of soap toward the mainland and America. The construction and the tourism lead the economy since the end of the seventies of the 20th century.
