Mallorca is the largest island in the Balearic Islands, located off the coast of Spain in the Mediterranean Sea.The island is known for its turquoise waters, sand beaches and whitewashed cobblestone villages. Yet, nestled deep within the valleys that give Mallorca its unique landscape, there are three villages that often go unnoticed. These villages come with stories of history, culture, spirituality, and even legend.

The first village is Santuari de Lluc, which is situated in the Tramuntana mountain range. This village has a long and rich history, dating back to the 13th century when a monk discovered a Marian shrine with a statue of the Virgin Mary.

The second village is Petra, located in the centre of the island. It is said to be the birthplace of the island's first settlers. It is known for its production of wine, which is produced in the fertile vineyards in the hills of the village.

Finally, there is the little village of Deiá, located on the north-west coast. This village was once bustling with activity during the early 20th century. It was a port town, with tall sailing ships docking to trade and restock supplies. It is now a peaceful village, with a mix of Roman and Arabic architecture.
