ESTELLENCS

Estellencs

Estellencs clings to the side of the Puig des Galatzó mountain. Around the church cobbled streets, often labyrinthine, start out in an urban network which ends up at the sea at Cala Estellencs. For centuries the terraces have made this piece of coastline singular, delimited by dry stone walls where olive trees, vines and vegetable gardens are planted, watered by a complex system of channels and canals inherited from the Arabs. The oldest houses are set around the church of Sant Joan Baptista, the belltower of which was once a defence tower against attacks by pirates.
