Bunyola

I am quite sure that I have not covered Bunyola yet on this blog, other than a reference to its Hospital Joan March when I got a beating from one distressed relative for mentioning the word death.

There is evidence of some prehistoric quadrangular settlements nearby such as Son Palou, Pujol and s’Alqueria Blanca. The Romans were here too as is manifested by sa Mina des Moros , also known as Galena de Son Creus, which also was in use during the Byzantine period. During the Islamic period, Bunyola belonged to the Juz’ of Bunyûla-Mûsû, as did nearby Esporles, Valldemossa, Deià and some parts of Banyalbufar.

Bunyola is probably best known for its train station. The Palma to Sóller train has stopped here almost since the inauguration of its line in 1912. Other well known attractions are at close range, such as Raixa, Alfàbia and Aurient (Orient). Bunyola is also popular with cyclists and mountain hikers; four or five mountains rise within easy reach and all above 968 metres, such as Puig des TeixSa Rateta and Alfàbia. Less demanding hikes or walks can be had on lower altitudes at Talaia de Cals Reis, Puig de Ses Crestes, Penyal d’Honor or Es Castellet. You should come and check it out.

The photo was taken in Bunyola, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: April 2nd, 2012. The time was 17:15:25.
