Municipality information Calvià

The municipality of Calvià is situated at in the southwest of Majorca, and it is the second most important municipality by population. The origin of its name is uncertain (it might come from the Latin patronymic calvianum).

The landscape goes from Marina del Cap de Cala Figuera (an extensive flat and dry area), a central part (area of hills and more or less open hills), a northern sector with mountains (Serra de Tramuntana, Puig de Galatzó, 1027 metres high; holm oaks preserved) to a coast of 54 kilometres with cliffs, small islands, coves and sandy areas. This coastal diversity explains that this area has been declared Zona de Especial Protección para la Avifauna, as well as one of the most important European regions for mass tourism.

The conquest of the Islamic Majorca began on the 10th of September 1229 in Santa Ponça with the disembarkation of the Christian king Jaume I d'Aragó and his troops. In the 16th and 17th centuries it suffered Saracene attacks, and a defence system of towers was built, and there has also been banditry. Between 1860 and 1950 there has been an enormous emigration toward Palma, Cuba, Argentina, Uruguay, Venezuela and Algeria.

In the sixties the touristic boom began, with the most important demographic, economic and social transformation of Majorca during the second half of the 20th century.

The cultural variety includes Talaiot de Son Miralles, Roman village sa Mesquida, Capella de la Pedra Sagrada, Torre des Moro, Oratori de Portals Nous, Castell de Bendinat, Església parroquial de Sant Joan Baptista, Molí des Castellet.
