What to do and what to see in Playa de Muro
- El Parque Natural de S’Albufera: The largest wetland in Majorca, S’Albufera is a protected area housing the largest number of native species on the island. Converted to nature park, it is open to visitors. The Visitor Centre offers valuable information about birds.
- Convent of Santa Anna in Muro: One of the most important religious buildings in northern Majorca, this convent sits in the Old Town in Muro. Enclosed by impossibly high walls. Both the convent and the church were built in the seventeenth/eighteenth centuries in the Baroque style.
- Muro Museum of Ethnography: This is Majorca’s official ethnography museum, with a great many valuable artefacts: farming tools, crafts, ceramics, and old apothecary, a cistern, a Ferris wheel… This museum is housed in one of the most iconic casals: Can Alomar, dating back to the seventeenth century.
- Roman site of Pollentia: In Alcudia, very close to Playa de Muro, there is one of the most important archaeological sites in Majorca and the Balearics at large. Visitors can walk through the site of this Roman village to discover where the houses, the forum or the theatre stood.
- Son Real Estate: Another of Majorca’s environmental assets, Son Real, in Can Picafort, a few kilometres from Playa de Muro, is a 400ha estate containing a traditional Majorcan manor house, prehistoric remains, old sand quarries, pine forests and junipers, fortified towers and many other hidden treasures.
