What to do and what to see in Costa de la Calma
Es Castellot watchtower: The watchtower was erected in the eighteenth century to defend the area from the ships approaching Santa Ponsa bay. It is visible from Cala Blanca beach. It is a private property, closed to the public.
Roman villa of Sa Mesquida: This archaeological site sits in Santa Ponsa bay and is among the first Roman villas excavated and protected in Majorca. Actually, it was found in the 1880s. However, most of it remained unearthed until a century later, when workers on a construction site saw it was larger than they thought.
Landing Cross: This monument pays tribute to the Christian Reconquista of Majorca by King Jaime I. The King landed in this area of Costa de la Calma, with more than 20,000 soldiers in 143 ships approaching Santa Ponsa bay. The cross has topped the access to the bay from the south since 1929.
