2. Outstanding Features

At 115 metres of height can be found Es Capdellà, a small village of the municipality of Calvià situated on the southern slope of the Puig de sa Grua. The impressive presence of the Puig de Galatzó, of 1.027 metres in height, dominates the rural landscape of the village. This was built between the XVII and XVIII centuries by the day labourers of the antique mansion houses of the area. The population is made up of a small urban nucleus and some houses here and there. Nowadays the population amounts to about one thousand inhabitants, many of which are foreigners. In the centre of the town is the church of 'Carmen' which was built between the XVIII century and the beginnings of the XIX century.

A popular tradition of  Es Capdellá says that, from a legend of the XIX century (inspired by the legend of the Comte Arnau de Catalunya), the Count of Formiguera transformed into 'Comte Mal', a character condemned, because of its cruelty, to ride on horseback for eternity every night of the year on a black horse encircled in flames.

The local patron saint festivities of Es Capdellá are celebrated in the month of July, in the festival of the 'Virgen del Carmen', a time when all the locals and visitors put on their 'Sunday clothes' for such a special occasion.

7. Impressions

In the heart of the Tramontana Mountain Range, Es Capdellà is a dreamlike place. Its extreme tranquillity and the beauty of its lovely surroundings have favoured the fact that many outsiders have chosen this locality as a permanent residence. One of the main attractions of the town, as well as, the imposing presence of Galatzó, is the beauty of the landscape and scenery which can be seen when travelling on its motorways which communicate Es Capdellá with Puigpunyent passing through Galilea. The same as that which unites Es Capdellá with Andratx going up the Coll de n'Esteve and with Paguera downwards between the Moleta de Son Vic and the Puig des Revell. The beauty of the scenery is something to be remembered forever.
