Fabulous short break

This is our third stay at la Pergola and was a lovely short break before the Easter rush. We upgraded to half board before we travelled and feel we got value for money. The hotel is very clean and the staff very friendly…

Tripadvisdor Review – April 2019


We stayed here whilst walking the GR221 for a little bit of luxury and that is exactly what we got. Watching the sunset made it extra special.

The most beautiful lighthouses of Mallorca

The most beautiful lighthouses of Mallorca

The lighthouses are the eyes of the island. The protectors that accompany the sailors and their boats on the darkest nights. Their flickering lights show the route and point the way back home. From their towers you can see for miles. Shipwrecks, wars... they have witnessed countless stories. In short, lighthouses have an extraordinary historical and cultural value.

In this article, you can discover some of the most beautiful and unusual lighthouses on Mallorca. Below, we present a selection of lighthouses that have inspired us either because of their history or their picturesque location. 

1. Ses Salines Lighthouse

In an idyllic setting on the south-east coast of Mallorca, surrounded by cliffs, caves and the remains of Talayotic settlements, is the lighthouse of Ses Salines. The name refers to the numerous salt pans in the area. These are places where the salt water evaporates so that the salt can be collected later. This ancient craft dates back to Roman times and still brings wealth to the island today. Ses Salines de Sa Vall are the second oldest in the world and gave their name to both the lighthouse and the municipality of Ses Salines.

The Ses Salines lighthouse was inaugurated by Emili Pou on 31 August 1863. In the 1980s, solar panels were installed, making it the first solar-powered lighthouse in Spain.

The surrounding area has a rich natural heritage, being the habitat of a great variety of birds, turtles and endemic plants. Given its rich historical and natural heritage, it is not surprising that it is one of the most popular lighthouses in Mallorca. From here you can also access unspoilt beaches and enjoy one of the most beautiful panoramic views of the island of Cabrera. 

2. Capdepera lighthouse

Following a narrow, winding road that leads to the easternmost point of Mallorca, we reach the Capdepera lighthouse, one of the island's landmarks. And one of the few that is still inhabited. From there, the lighthouse watches over the waters of the Menorca Channel. The red and white lights flash every two minutes to alert sailors to the limits of the channel that separates the two islands. The Capdepera lighthouse is located on a 58-metre cliff and offers magnificent views of Cala Ratjada, Canyamel and, on a clear day, the island of Menorca. Next to the lighthouse you can also see the "Torre Esbucada", a defence tower from the 18th century.

Here, at Cape Capdepera, in 1231, King Jaume II awaited the return of the emissaries he had sent to Menorca to force the Muslim surrender of the island. In the 19th century, Queen Isabella II ordered the construction of the lighthouse, which was designed by the engineer Emilio Pou in 1861. Since its construction, the Capdepera lighthouse has experienced countless shipwrecks and accidents, as it is located in an area affected by particularly strong winds. In 1869, the lighthouse keepers were awarded the Cross of Charity (Orden Civil de la Beneficencia) due to a strong storm that caused several accidents.

3. Aucanada lighthouse

Alcanada (Aucanada in Mallorcan) is a pleasant coastal area located at the northern end of the Bay of Alcudia. From there, 150 metres off the coast, you can see a small island crowned by a 15-metre-high tower: the lighthouse of Alcanada. Surrounded by crystal-clear turquoise waters and a magnificent view of the Bay of Alcudia, the Aucanada lighthouse has a very special charm. In fine weather, you can cross the strait that separates the coast from the island.

It was designed by Emili Pou and inaugurated on 15 May 1861. Like many other lighthouses, the Aucanada lighthouse has experienced several shipwrecks. It was inhabited for 100 years by its lighthouse keepers, who took an active part in rescuing the victims. Twice a week a boat brought supplies from Puerto de Alcudia. During the Civil War (1936-39), the population of the small island grew with the arrival of soldiers stationed there to guard and defend the coast. Since 1960, the lighting of the Alcanada lighthouse has been automated and the lighthouse is no longer inhabited.

4. Portopí Lighthouse

Located in the port of Portopí in Palma, this lighthouse was a key element in the development of the city's medieval port. Its existence is documented since the 13th century, when the Almohads used the port as a refuge in the waters of Mare Nostrum. The Portopí lighthouse indeed has an incredible historical heritage. Not only is it the second oldest lighthouse in Spain, it is also one of the oldest working lighthouses in the world: the third oldest after the Tower of Hercules and the Lighthouse of Genoa.

Because of its importance, the Portopí lighthouse was declared an art-historical monument in 1983. Today, the lighthouse houses a museum that exhibits maritime instruments and signals from the past. From different lighting systems to the glasses used by the lighthouse keepers. It is one of the most complete collections of maritime lighting systems and signals in Europe. We also have the opportunity to learn about the history of the lighthouse and how it works during a guided tour.

So much for our tour of some of Mallorca's most beautiful lighthouses. We at La Pérgola advise you to visit them. They are part of our memory and our roots, and we hope they will remain for many years to come and bear witness to countless stories.
