Fornalutx
On the foothills of the Puig Major, the island’s highest mountain, Fornalutx maintains its architectural heritage almost intact: stone houses that adapt to pronounced differences in level. The town hall occupies the former 16th-century ancestral home of Can Arbona, and conserves its tall, robust square defence tower. Many of the houses have painted roof tiles, a tradition that celebrates the completion of a house, decorated with flat designs in red representing geometrical, plant, anthropomorphic or zoomorphic shapes.
