On Mallorca Sundays and holidays are usually spent with the family. You get together for a long lunch at home or you pack the kids and some food for an ample picnic open-air. There is a multitude of popular destinations on the island. Like Finca Galatzó, a huge public area at the foot of the namesake one-thousander in the southern Tramuntana.
I have been hiking up the Puig de Galatzó many times and always marvelled at the vistas. Maybe you read about it on my blog. But it was just a few weeks ago that I explored the Finca Galatzó for the first time. The noble old mansion and farmhouse were carefully renovated and tell a lot about Tramuntana life in former times.
You can rest right here at one of the wooden tables or follow the path further on through the valley. Passing wide orchards of almond trees and chalk burner‘s places along the way. As peaceful as the plateau enclosed by the mountains seems to be you still sense the hardships of previous generations. And the force of nature itself.
Every now and then picnic tables in the shadow invite you to sit down and indulge in your Sunday lunch. While the children run around and explore the surroundings you may just enjoy the moment. Feels like somebody stopped the flow of time.
