Campanet is situated at the foothills of the dramatic Tramuntana mountain range. It is a lovely, authentic Mallorcan village with the typical flair and atmosphere that visitors want to experience on Mallorca.
The town has about 2.600 inhabitants, including a small community of ex-pats from various European countries. Campanet is not exactly on the typical beaten tourist track on the contrary, it is an undiscovered little jewel, not an “exciting” village to visit but more for people who are sport and nature-orientated.
For the more active and adventurous, cycling is hugely popular in this region of the island and you will see large groups of cyclists dominating the roads in the spring and autumn months and relaxing in the main village square.
Campanet is only about a 30-minutes’ drive away from the island capital Palma, but you will feel miles away from the hustle and bustle of the busy resorts on the coast, that are only about 15 minutes away by car. This sleepy little pueblo is part of a charming and thankfully undiscovered Mallorca.
If you want to view pretty examples of typical Mallorcan yesteryear architecture, Campanet is certainly a place to admire quaint houses. Take a stroll through the winding streets and you will find the most amazing town houses for sale everywhere, Campanet is a very tranquil and authentic village, property hunters who want to experience the local way of life will be very happy to join the community. Exquisite Mallorcan country houses, renovated by their new owners who are mainly foreigners, are dotted all over the countryside on the outskirts of the village. You will discover these lovely country gems on your way to the beautiful valley called Aixartell, join this popular hiking trail and take in the spectacular scenery. The valley connects the Campanet area to the Pollensa municipality. And while you are hiking in the Campanet area, check out the lovely hotel Monnaber Vell and you have surely found a wonderful place to stay when you next visit the island – if you are not already booked in there, that is!
The village offers everything you need for basic life, it has small supermarkets and grocery stores, bakeries, chemists and, of course, a selection of bars and cafés like all villages and towns on Mallorca. The market in Campanet is on Tuesday mornings, it doubles up as a meeting place to catch up with friends over a cup of coffee. Campanet is easily and quickly connected to other areas on the island, serious shopping takes place in nearby Inca town, with its weekly market on Thursday mornings.
As far as culture is concerned, in Campanet all roads lead you to the large main square known (as in most villages on the island) as the ‘Plaça Major’. Here your attention is immediately taken in by the imposing church of ‘The Immaculate Conception’. This church, dating back to the 18th century, is perched in prominent position on the hill-top and it dominates Campanet’s skyline. The church can be seen from afar, as likewise most village churches on Mallorca can.
The Immaculate Conception is not the only house of prayer in Campanet, the delightful 13th century chapel of Saint Michael (Sant Miquel) is on the outskirts near the famous natural springs called “Fonts Ufanes”. The chapel was converted from a former Mosque and is actually one of the oldest churches on Mallorca. Hiking about 10 minutes from the village centre, you reach the aforementioned “Font Ufanes”, a scenic recreation area that occasionally floods after heavy rains in the Tramuntana mountains. Cycling and hiking are the most popular sports activities in the whole Campanet area.
And then there are the caves of Campanet, they were discovered in 1945 by a man digging a well. The caves have stunning natural rock formations and underground lakes.
