Caimari is one of Mallorca's prettiest country villages. Tranquil, laid-back with winding narrow streets and a typically Mallorcan village square, this is a place to relax and enjoy the great views and friendly atmosphere.
Located inland at the edge of the Tramuntana mountains, Caimari provides an authentic taste of rural Mallorca with history and cultural interest in abundance.
Well-known for the olive oil it produces, the village is picturesque with a slow pace and is very popular with hikers and cyclists. The focal point of the village, like most villages on the island, is Placa Major, the village square. Here you will find a couple of restaurants, a few cafes and a few shops including a bakery.
You’ll also see the 19th century church with a bell that tolls every 15 minutes. It’s a great place to unwind, have a few cold drinks and people watch.
In the centre of the village is a working horse-driven olive press and this serves as the focal point for the annual Olive Fair held in Caimari every November; which attracts visitors from far and wide.
Most visitors come to the village to relax and get away from the touristy areas of the island; however if you are feeling energetic, there are some great walks and cycling routes in the area.
If you have a car. the more energetic south coast resorts and the city of Palma are all within easy reach, closer to Caimari, the nearby village of Selva has a market on Thursdays.
