Peguera means “pitch oven”, as this product was manufactured here with the pine resin. In the past, the almond harvest used to be loaded in Peguera and taken to the ports in the Peninsula. Moreover, Peguera is one of the pioneering tourist areas in Mallorca.
The hotels in Peguera have fantastic beaches. This area is also famous in Mallorca thanks to its wide boulevard, which has many shops, restaurants and cafés.
Located in the foothills of the northern Serra, Peguera is a perfect place to go hiking and come into contact with nature.
In the outskirts of Peguera there is Cala Fornells, a place that reminds you of the typical Mediterranean hamlets, with small buildings and some prestigious restaurants.
In terms of rural architecture, Peguera has some stately homes such as “Possessió de Peguera”, which belonged to the Bishop of Barcelona. It is important to highlight its cloister with its wonderful cobbled paving. Another example of stately homes is “La Torà”, a property that also gives name to the beach nearby.
Peter IV of Aragon disembarked on this coast when he came to fight for Mallorca against James III in 1343. He deposed James III and consequently Mallorca passed into the hands of the Crown of Aragon.
Peguera’s waters were also witness of the pirate incursions carried out by Barbarossa, who disembarked here to capture slaves and sell them in the market of Algiers.
Cala Fornells, one of the neighbouring beaches, was also used as a refuge by the film heartthrob Rodolfo Valentino, who lived in his residence “Ca na Taca” with his wife, the dancer Natacha Rambowa.
Next to Caló de Ses Llises there is a finca called “S’Estaca”, which has been used as a set for several films, such as “Evil Under the Sun” by Agatha Christie, starring Peter Ustinov.
The hotels in Peguera have an capacity of over 1400 people divided into 26 establishments.
