Felanitx and the Santueri de Sant Salvador
"Capers, what capers?"
I took a trip to Felanitx to check out The guidebook's recomended market. Apparently capers are the speciality here, but to be honest all I could find were shoe stalls, stalls selling cheap clothing and more shoe stalls. The inside market did contain veg and food stalls, but nothing dramatically different to any market pretty much anywhere you'd go.
Clearly a favoured destination of tourists, Felanitx around the market area was packed out. The market is situated at the foot of the Sant Miquel church, a fairly elegant but blocky church.
To the south of Felanitx is the Santueri de San Salvador, well worth a trip if you have a car. This is a monastary complex atop a mountain visible from miles around, reached by the worst, most manic winding road I think I've ever driven up! Some mad people were actually cycling up it which I think is above and beyond the call of healthy lifestyles... Just driving up I think took me more time than I actually spent in the place at the top, but worth the effort.
Felanitx itself doesn't hold a whole lot to occupy you for more than a few hours in my mind. Again, it was a nice place to escape to from the daily toil of hanging out by the swimming pool, an antidote to the likes of Cala Millor. Ah, hard life isn't it?!
