About Porto Cristo and surrounding area:

Porto Cristo harbor

Look at the colorful harbor of Porto Cristo

Porto Cristo is a vast harbour town in the southeast of Majorca with nearly 7500 residents. The former fishing village was founded in 1888. Archaeological finds from the nearby caves "Cuevas Blances" show, however, that the area was already inhabited during the Talaiot culture (13th-2nd century BC.). Even the Romans used the harbour as it was protected from high waves.

Mallorca „down-under“ - the coves of Porto Cristo

The area of Porto Cristo is crossed by numerous cave systems. As an example, of the "Coves del Drach 'and' Cuevas dels Hams", which are among the most popular destinations of Majorca can be found here. The so-called dragon caves were long known to have traces of talaoit settlements who once occupied the cave entrance. Residents or pirates also often used the caves as a shelter. But only at the end of the 19th century, was the extensive cave system thoroughly researched. In 1896, E. A. Martel discovered Martel Lake, named after himself and which is one of the largest underground lakes in Europe. It has a length of 177 metres, a width of 40 metres and an average depth of up to 9 feet.

Among the highlights of a visit here are the classical concerts that are presented from a boat. The "Coves dels Hams" were discovered in 1905 and are distinguished by their branched cave system and their bizarre stalactite formations. Both caves are set up with an artistic light effects scenes.

Authentic harbour atmosphere in Porto Cristo

Der langgestreckte Hafen von Porto Cristo schmiegt sich an die schlangenförmige Bucht „Cala de Manacor“, in die der meist trockene Bach „Es Riutet“ mündet. Im westlichen, hinteren Teil des Hafens sieht man noch viele Fischerboote.

The elongated port of Porto Cristo hugs the serpentine bay "Cala de Manacor," in which the usually dry creek "Es Riutet" can be seen. In the western, rear part of the harbour you can still see many fishing boats. In Porto Cristo at least seven men live their lives as full time fishermen. Every morning at 10 clock in the port they offer their fresh catch for sale. In the eastern part of the harbour you find the marina "Club Nautico de Porto Cristo". The Yacht Club was founded in 1969, was renovated a few years ago and has 200 berths for boats up to 18 metres long and four metres draft. A tank facility and one boat lift are available.

A town of charm and character

The centre of Porto Cristo is located north of the harbour basin. Most of the buildings are modern and functional, as Porto Cristo has grown substantially since the 50s. But if you look closely, you still sees the occasional fisherman's house or a country estate between the multi-storey apartment blocks. Around 1922, the neo-Romanesque Church "Mare de Deu del Carme" was completed and now is central to the tranquil village life of the locals. Here everyone knows everyone, and local news is exchanged in chats at the bakery or in one of the cosy bars.

In Porto Cristo gourmet lovers will certainly not be disappointed. The chef of a local Baden-run "Sa Sal" in the Calle de Tramuntana 11 delights with Mediterranean 5-course menus. And the Italian restaurant "d`il Porto" is highly praised. On the terrace you can enjoy a beautiful view of the harbour and the sea.
