Although Felanitx is quite a large village, by Mallorcan village standards, the inhabitants are accustomed to a slow and easy paced life and the nightlife is no different.
Pavement cafés and bars can get quite animated during fiestas or the occasional televised "El Classico" match but mostly its the busy drone of conversations and laughter mingling with clinking glasses and crockery as people enjoy their evening meals or tapas.
Felanitx is in the centre of the islands second most important wine production areas, Llevent & Pla, which is renowned for the quality of its whites and fresh red wines. Its is said that 9 out of every 10 bottles of Mallorcan wine consumed on the island are from this area.
Nearby Petra also produces some wines of note.
Felanitx is surrounded by beautiful countryside which can be best appreciated from the Sanctuary San Salvador and the Castle Santueri, both standing on majestic peaks.
The coastline of Cala d'Or, Porto Colom and down to Cala Santanyi offers wonderful, hidden coves and popular sandy beaches. Further south the long beaches of Sa Rapita and Es Trenc offer space and natural beauty as well as the opportunity to bare all on the naturist beach.
Felanitx is a typical Mallorcan agricultural town with numerous shops, cafés and restaurants all surrounding the impressive church of San Miguel, scene of a great disaster in 1844 when the walls of the church fell and killed 414 people taking part in the Palm Sunday procession.
There is a weekly market held every Sunday morning.
The church os San Miguel is accessed by a number of white stone steps which can be quite a challenge in the heat of summer! Inside, there is a plaque commemorating the deaths of 414 people killed when the church walls fell onto the Palm Sunday procession of 1844. The circular, stained glass window depicts the Arch Angel Michael standing on Satan.
Castle Santueri stands atop a nearby mountain and provides a great vantage point to view much of the whole island and the coast.
