Over the past few weeks, we've been following some of Mallorca's most talented chefs to their favorite spots on our beautiful island. Juan Pinel and Serge Aimamy take us to Finca Galatzó, a beautiful estate, and a cultural site that reveals the rich history of Mallorca. Come with us.
Within the Serra de Tramuntana the Puig de Galatzó (1025 m) is a landscape reference of the island. Galatzó has a rich natural heritage, where oak forests, pine forests and garrigues stand out, as well as an important mountain vegetation and cultivated areas with olive trees, carob trees, almond trees and orchards.
Their patrimonial and historical value is unquestionable as they are witnesses of ways of life and traditions that are part of our most recent history.
The oldest evidence of human occupation of Galatzó dates back to prehistoric times, from the Bronze Age to the medieval Islamic period, since it seems that, in its origins, the possession was an Islamic alqueria.
