Algaida is a beautiful rural town made of Mallorca's famous sandstone, with green shutters, narrow streets and a central square with a beautiful 15th century church. The small village of Algaida is located between the lowlands of the small hills located halfway between Palma and Manacor, just off the road that connects them. Around this beautiful village, there are many old windmills. Algaida welcomes a small number of tourists all year round compared to the larger resorts on the island, it is one of the best places to soak up the authentic Mallorcan culture, especially if you are looking for some good quality local cuisine. The most famous attraction of the village is the "Puig de Randa", a mountain on which 3 monastery complexes from the 13th century are enthroned. A good recommendation is to visit the recently renovated "Ermita de la Pau", the oldest church in Mallorca, which is situated not far from the village. Just outside the village is the oldest glass-blowing factory in Mallorca, which is still in operation today and where visitors can witness the production of glasses, vases and other jewellery. Algaida is a suitable holiday resort for those seeking peace and quiet. Bathing beaches and other excursion destinations can be reached in about 30 minutes by car.
