Calvià

calvia

 

With one foot on the Sierra de Tramuntana and the other one on Palma's Bay, Calvià is one of the most powerful villages in Mallorca.


It is bordered by Palma on the West, with Andratx on the East and the mountain villages of Estellencs and Puigpunyent. Calvià is the second most populous villages on the island. It has near 50,000 inhabitants, living along the twenty urban areas of the municipality. Santa Ponça and Palma Nova are the most populous.

 

The high percentage of foreign residents, around 35%, puts Calvià above the island average. Calvià takes its name from the main town and capital of the municipality, which is believed to be derived from the Latin word calvianum.

 

Tourism is the most outstanding economic sector, but Calvià is also a village full of history. It was one of the locations where the Rei En Jaume landed to conquer Mallorca, and the town of Santa Ponça celebrates some commemorative festivities during the month of September.

 

Nevertheless, the main festivity of the village is celebrated on Sant Jaume's day. On the other hand, Calvià stands out for the Sheep and Goat Fair, as well as for the Autumn Fair in Es Capdellà.
