La Granja, Mallorca, Spain

La Granja is mainly an ethnographic museum where it's possible to go back in time and learn about the traditional crafts needed to keep a farm functioning. It also has some historical exhibitions. At the beginning of the visit, there are a few farm animals and the main house is surrounded by gardens, ponds, fountains and waterfalls, with small streams of water and watermills. At the end of the visit, there's a sampling shop where it's possible to taste a selection of traditional products. There's also a cafe and a restaurant that can be accessed without visiting the museum. On Wednesdays and Fridays, it's possible to watch the craftsmen and women live at work and there's a traditional show.
The visit will take longer than usual for this type of museum, as there is quite a lot to see, so reserve at least a couple of hours.

Opening hours: 10 am to 7 pm (6pm in Winter)
Entrance fee: €15
How to go: Take bus 200 from Palma de Mallorca to Esporles

Back to Tramuntana
