Default Fornalutx

...beautiful name, beautiful place! With a backdrop of Puig Mayor. Well worth a diversion if your on the Pollenca to Palma road through the Serra de Tramuntana. Lovely honey coloured buildings, streams running through the streets, stepped paths, cobbled roads, limon trees and lovely friendly inhabitants. We met a dog called Brut, he was ace!!!

...ha, ha!
no because that day we were originally going to take the lilos out at Cala san v. but decided against it as it was a bit windy on Sunday. So, on the spur of the moment we decided to go for a ride to Soller but instead ended up at beautiful Fornalutx. We also went and had a look round Dicky Bransons old hotel 'La Residencia' in Deia which is something else! As you may guess I was kicking myself all day for not having the old Cibershot! We will go back soon though I'm sure.
Ill put one on of some interesting cloud activity over Boquer tonight but as it's not that good I'ts only for a limited peroid only for those who are interested!

Have seen the photo Chris - am afraid the clouds don't really show - but am intrigued re the new building - is it another school?

Yes its the school to replace the one being knocked down in the square I think.

We went here for the first time this year and I agree with Chris a really beautiful place. Narrow, winding cobbled streets,lovely houses and every doorstep decorated with beautiful terracotta pots filled with lush plants and flowers. There were lots of lemon groves as Chris said and also bamboo ( I think) growing everywhere, so maybe cane furniture is the major craft in the area.

We sat in the main square people watching while we had a couple of beers and some delicious boquerones and croquetas :b Great afternoon!

It's supposedly the prettiest village in Europe so the guide book said! Certainly worth a visit.
