Bunyola is a little village located in the Sierra de Tramuntana

 


It borders with the villages of Valldemossa, Deià, Sóller, Escorca, Alaró, Santa María del Camí, Marratxí and Palma. It includes different urban areas like the town of Bunyola, Orient, Palmanyola or Sa Coma, and also has some interesting spots such as the Sa Comuna forest or the possessions of Raixa, Son Termes or Alfabia, among others.

 

Its name comes from the Arab region of Bunyûla-Musu, which included some neighboring towns. Bunyola's economy has always been closely linked to mountain resources. Wood and charcoal were extracted from the trees; in winter, ice was accumulated in the cases de neu ('snow houses'), olive oil and olives were extracted from the trees and thrushes were also hunted with nets. Currently, Bunyola is a common stop spot for the cycling tourists traveling through the Sierra de Tramuntana.

 

Bunyola celebrates its festivities for Sant Mateu in the middle of September. On the other hand, Orient celebrates them on Saint George's Day, while Palmanyola celebrates the day of the Virgin of August.

 

Bunyola celebrates two traditional weekly markets: on Wednesdays and Sundays.
