Santa Maria del Camí

On hi ha pi,
hi ha bon vi.

Santa Maria del Camí has specialised in viticulture and wine since ancient times. In the 18th century it became very important for the production of brandy, even exporting to the rest of Europe and South America.
It is set between the plain and the mountains and is a good starting point for walks to Orient and Alaró.
The Plaça dels Hostals is a shopping centre where you’ll find shops, bars and restaurants.
