Alaior stands on a small hill in the interior of the island and was founded in 1304 by King James II of Mallorca. The narrow streets in the old town date from the medieval era. The fascinating details to be seen as you stroll through the area take you back in time.
The Church of Santa Eulàlia is the most important building in Alaior and has stood here ever since the town was founded, though it was rebuilt in the 17th century in a style inspired by the Baroque. Other notable spots include the courtyard of Sa Lluna, the former cloister of a convent, Can Salort, a grand residence built for one of the town’s wealthy families but which is now owned by the municipal council, the Shrine of Sant Pere, the town square and some of the mills dotted around the nearby surroundings.
