Banyalbufar was once built on some 2000 terraces that were used for long-term purposes. Even today, the well-preserved terraces of the well-known Malvasia grape is grown - and of course can be tasted at the local wineries.
Banyalbufar is worth a stop anyway. Whether it's just to enjoy the beautiful surroundings, to experience culinary highlights or to admire historical buildings.

Banyalbufar is a picturesque mountain village founded in the 10th century. Its name means “small vineyard by the sea”. Until the phylloxera incursion in the 19th century, the area around Banyalbufar was one of the most important wine-growing regions on Mallorca - its winemakers supplied the Spanish royal family with their Malvasia, among others. The terraced fields for viticulture were laid out in the early days of the place and shape its appearance to this day.
