Costitx Holiday Villas and Apartments for rent. Self catering luxury properties selected for you.
The idyllic village of Costitx is one of the oldest towns on the island of Mallorca. It is smaller than the neighbouring village of Sencelles, but the two squares give the village a feeling of space.
In one square there is a playground for children, which is conveniently located opposite the bar for the adults. In the other square is a coffee shop and a bakery, and some fountains to provide a pleasant soundtrack whilst enjoying a drink in the sun. Costitx is a popular destination for cyclists, with many of the local routes passing nearby. Team Sky have even been known to stop at the bar for a rest whilst training.
When you're stopping in a specially selected Balearic Villas propert in or around Costitx, you get the added convenience of having two small supermarkets and a pharmacy in the centre of the village.
Costitx is quite famous for the Mallorca Planetarium & Observatory, which is just to the south of the village. In 1991 the Spanish government funded the opening of this for the purposes of searching for and monitoring comets and asteroids. Its proudest moment was identifying two new asteroids, the first to be identified by an observatory in Spain for over 60 years. The observatory is open to the public and a very popular tourist destination.
Just a few kilometers from Costitx you will find Inca. This is one of the largest towns on the island and well known for its wine cellars. Many of which are now used as restaurants providing an extremely varied cuisine. The market held on Thursdays in Inca is one of the busiest on the island, filling most of the town centre streets.
Just a few kilometers in the opposite direction from Costitx is the town of Sineu, famous for traditional Mallorcan restaurants, where local cuisine can be enjoyed in settings steeped in history.
Just 30 minutes away by car there are the coastal towns of Alcudia and Puerto Pollenca (Port de Pollenca) with long stretches of safe sandy beaches. For the energetic, in the old town of Pollenca there are 365 steps leading to a small chapel. This is host to the most dramatic parade of the year on Good Friday, where the ceremonial parade is carried out in total silence, apart from the beating of a drum. It culminates with a mock crucifixion on the top of the hill.
There is archaeological evidence showing that it has been inhabited since prehistoric times. The town as it is today grew from an old Arab farmstead during the Islamic occupation of the island before the Christian conquests. There are 18 recognised archaeological sites in the area including the house of Margalida Cativa who lived in the village from 1888 to 1919. Her body now lies in the presbytery of the Parish Church of Our Lady of Costitx, and she is currently in the process of beatification by the Roman Catholic Church in Rome.
