Genova lies at the foot of Mallorca’s Naburguesa mountain range and is now looked upon as being part of ‘greater Palma’. Genova is an attractive place and has become particularly popular with foreigners looking to find a pleasant place to live in Majorca. Genova has the benefit of having its own distinct identity, but within easy reach of one of the most beautiful cities in Europe: Palma.
Genova boasts many excellent restaurants too. A fine example is Es Reco de Genova (971702 960) which specialises in Mallorcan cuisine and offers fabulous views over the village. However, an absolute ‘must do’ just outside Genova is the famous Restaurante Na Burguesa. Situated high up on top of a hill, it’s a great place to dine whilst enjoying the spectacular views of Palma bay and beyond.
Genova even has its own underground caves. The Cuevas de Genova are easy to get to and are ideal for a family day out. It is the smallest cave system in Mallorca and you can enjoy a guided tour exploring the beautiful underground galleries. Once the home of pre-historic people, the caves are open all year round and there is an excellent restaurant too Restaurante Cuevas de Genova (971 402 387) Although Genova is a peaceful, laid-back place home to just over 4,000 people, it comes to life every August to celebrate its patron saint San Salvador. (Genova, naturally has its old, pretty church, unsurprisingly named after San Salvador.)
Genova is also very handy for Palma International Airport, just a few miles away via the nearby ring-road motorway. There are regular bus services too, connecting with Palma and beyond. All in all, Genova is a most popular place which attracts many people to Mallorca in order to look for a house for sale in Genova.
