Sant Llorenc (East)
Sant Llorenç des Cardassar, located in the northeast of Mallorca, is a traditional Mallorcan village from the 16th century located a few kilometres from Manacor. It has around 3,000 inhabitants and stands out for its spectacular architecture and numerous places of cultural interest. Situated in the heart of an extensive protected and agricultural area, in Sant Llorenç you will find the traditional Mallorcan fincas called "possessió" and you will be able to go on fantastic excursions. The region is dominated by fig, olive, citrus and almond trees, and herds of animals are a common sight. Sant Llorenç is nothing like the typical tourist resorts that dot the Mallorcan coastline. However, it has first class hotels, fincas, villas and rural houses, both in the village itself and in the surrounding area. There are also shops, pharmacies, supermarkets and banks, as well as schools and public buildings. Sant Llorenç stands out for its proximity to the town of Manacor and the east coast of the island. The locality is surrounded by several mountains belonging to the Sierra de Levante, a mountainous formation that extends across the southeast of Mallorca. Sant Llorenç is an old rural nucleus that was consolidated in the 16th century. Over the years it has experienced constant growth and at the end of the 19th century it managed to separate from the municipality of Manacor, becoming its own municipality. The growth of the tourist sector with its coastal urban centres has brought great wealth to the municipality.
