FORGOTTEN MALLORCAN TREASURES TO REDISCOVER
1) Porta Petro
Not only is this a dreamy little fishing port worthy of your IG feed, it’s also home to the beautiful Can Lis. Built in the 70's on the cliffs of Porta Petro, Can Lis was designed by Danish architect Jørn Utzon (who famously designed the iconic Sydney Opera House.) The house is available to rent nine months of the year, from September to June, and reserved for longer working stays for architects, artists or others working with architectural expression.
Famed for its pearl factory and good-quality wooden furniture, Manacor is usually the place tourists pass by. However, if you do ever find yourself in this neck of the woods, the store Can Garanya in Manacor is a must. If you’re a fan of hand blown glassware, woven rugs and Mallorcan ceramics (guilty as charged), Can Garanya is the place to stop by and fill up your suitcase. Run by three cousins and now made up of made up of three shops, it was originally founded in 1928 by their grandfather who was a former rope maker. Its floor to celling rattan will make any interior enthusiast weak at the knees.
“Follow the smell of pine trees to the crystalline waters of blue and turquoise, framed by those beautiful Ibizan 30's style houses. Then take yourself down the stainless steel ladders for a swim.”
