Over the years Fornalutx has received several different conservation and preservation awards - one for being one of the best preserved villages in the whole of Spain.
The history of Fornalutx starts over 1,000 years ago, when it was an Arab farmstead. After the Catalan conquest of the island in the 13th Century, the population of the area started to grow and a church, which is still standing today, was completed in 1639.
The charm of Fornalutx lies in just how untouched and untainted it is by the modern world. There is however a reasonable choice of accommodation and enough restaurants to satisfy the hungry.
Perfect for a lunch or a coffee stop, park up at the first café or restaurant that takes your fancy. They are all good.
Stop either before or after conquering Puig Major. But stop.
