The cosy village of Petra, with its municipality of the same name, is one of the most peaceful places in Mallorca. It is located in the east of the island and is about 44 km away from the capital Palma. In this small and pleasant rural village live about 2,500 people, many of whom are engaged in wine growing. The nearest beaches are about 20 minutes away by car. The original village has remained completely untouched by tourism. Visitors should explore the beautiful vineyards in the area and try one of the delicious white wines, such as Cabernet Sauvignon or Chardonnay. Petra is famous for one of its former inhabitants, the Franciscan friar Junipero Serra, traces of whom can still be found throughout the small town. In addition, there are many ancient walls, charming quarried stone buildings and old narrow streets in the old town, which should definitely be explored as they make up the special charm of the city.
