Cala San Vincente Attractions

The nearest town to Cala San Vincente is Pollensa old town, which you will have undoubtedly passed through on your journey from the airport. The name Pollensa originally dates from the 14th Century when settlers from nearby Alcudia named the town after their former Roman capital. Among the many remaining historic buildings is a former Jesuit convent which is now still used as the local Town Hall.

Not to everyone's interest or taste, but Cala San Vincente is the site of one of the most important, and largest, pre-talaiotic necropolises in Majorca. Before you ask what "pre-talaiotic necropolises" are?, they are a series of man-made cave dwellings dating back to the Bronze Age.

At the beginning of the 20th Century, records show that there were about 20 of the original caves still in existence, however, this number has declined to the 7 that we can see today. Hopefully, the Local Government will now act to preserve them for future generations.

At the other cultural extreme from "pre-talaiotic necropolises", the resort also has a good mini golf course.
