Calonge is a small urban centre belonging to the municipality of Santanyi. It is 60 km from Palma and 26.9 km from Manacor. Nearby are the towns of Cala d'Or, Porto Petro and Porto Colom. The approximate population of the town is 1,000 inhabitants. Hardly any tourists stop off in Calonge and stroll through its alleys. Wrongly so, because the village has a number of treasures worth seeing that only become apparent when you take a second look. On both sides of the main street are small alleys lined with low residential buildings. It is the small details that make up the charm of the village. You will encounter artfully decorated entrance portals and doors in many places. In tiny backyards, terracotta tubs with lush planting line up, while wooden benches invite you to take a rest in between. The parish church Iglesia de Sant Miquel rises up in the central square, its entrance portal emblazoned with the typical Mallorcan window rosette. It was consecrated in 1909. Every Thursday is market day in Calonge. In the market square, traders and farmers set up their stalls and stock them with fresh fruit and vegetables, baked goods, seafood and ceramics. If you rent a holiday home in Mallorca in the vicinity, take advantage of the weekly market to stock up on fresh food.
