About 63 km from Palma away, is the city of Porto Cristo located. Initially the port belonged to the town Manacor, which is 13 kilometers away from Porto Cristo.
The quality of life is high because of the beautiful harbor with its promenade, the sandy beaches and a good gastronomy. The old town of Porto Cristo is charming by the narrow alleys and historic buildings. Worth seeing is the church "Esglesia Mare de Deú del Carme" in the town centre.
In the history warned the nearby lighthouse "Torre del Serral dels Falcons" from possible pirate attacks. During the Spanish Civil War, the lighthouse was destroyed and later restored.
Porto Cristo is also known for the Club Nautico. The pool of the club offers views to the sea and can be used by visitors. The coast of Porto Cristo is very rich of caves. Especially well-known are the caves "Drac" and "Coves dels Hams". Those are popular tourist attractions in Majorca. About the underwater world of the Mediterranean informs the aquarium "Aquari de Mallorca" with its 115 aquariums.
