Cultural route

Esporles: the old town

The vicarage can be reached from Saint Peter’s Church. If you walk up Carrer de Costa i Llobera and Carrer de Mossèn Alcover streets, you come to a little cobbled path that leads to Font de Son Tries de Baix. This is an important spring which still supplies water to the town, featuring a qanat (underground gallery), irrigation pond and public washing place. If you go down to Passeig del Rei, you can walk through the old quarter, which stretches across the eastern bank of Sant Pere Torrent.  

The houses in Carrer des Balladors and Carrer de Mestre Munar streets (where the school is) and, further up, in Carrer de Cotoner and Carrer de la Creu all stand out for their harmonious architecture. Lastly you come to Carrer de Darrere sa Paret and Carrer des Gorg streets. Along the way, examples of austere popular architecture can be seen, including buildings with projecting roofs of painted tiles, some dating back to the mid 19th century.
