S’Alqueria Blanca

S'Alqueria Blanca a Santanyí, Mallorca

S´Alqueria Blanca is a small village near the coast with around 1,000 residents; the most outstanding structure here is the church. It was originally a large estate, until, at the end of the 16th century, a settlement was established here, around which are situated towers to protect against pirate attacks, which frequently caused damage in this area.

The Sanctuary of La Mare de Déu de la Consolació (Sanctuary of Mother of God of Consolation) is located at the top of a hill near S´Alqueria Blanca as you head towards Santanyí. It is a complex of buildings from the 15th century which is protected by walls, with a church with a single nave with a barrel-vault ceiling.
