Villas in Petra Mallorca for culture lovers
If you are someone who loves to visit amazing places full of culture, Petra is definitely a treasure to be discovered. One of the places you must visit is the Fray Junipero Serra Museum, an old rural home that housed the famous Spanish friar Junipero Serra, and where you can see exhibits that tell the story of his life and his different missions of evangelization that extended to the American continent. Another historic site you should visit is the church of San Pedro, whose structure dates back to 1248 and which over the years has been modified to what it is today, an impressive building with a Gothic style. Alcudia is another fantastic Mallorcan town if culture is what you’re seeking. Visit a tourist office to pick up a historical map which will guide you around the sites and monuments that show the history of Alcudia’s ancient settlers including Romans, Byzantines, Arabs and much later, the Catalans.

Top 7 travel tips in Petra
1. Visit the Ramon Llull Square
This famous square is named after the Spanish philosopher and writer Ramon Llull. This square is one of the most important squares in Petra and is a fairly quiet tourist spot to stroll around and visit the various shops and restaurants that surround it, perfect for a relaxing but interesting day out.
2. Discover Ermita de la Mare de Déu de Bonany
This shrine located on a wooded hill 4 kilometres from Petra is the place where the fray Junipero Serra gave his last sermon before leaving for his evangelization missions in America. Its structure is imposing and from this location, you can have beautiful views of the incredible expanses of forest that surround the building.
3. Explore the convent of Sant Bernardi
This convent dates back to 1607 when a group of Franciscan friars settled in the locality, and it was here that the fray Junipero Serra carried out his studies. Today it is open to the public and houses a variety of religious artefacts and objects related to the famous missionary Junipero.
4. Have a fantastic meal at Es Celler de Petra
This restaurant has a very peculiar style, with several stone columns that form arches inside the restaurant, and iron chandeliers that give it a tavern feel, but quite modern and elegant. Here you can enjoy authentic Mallorcan food, with main courses and the most succulent desserts.
5. Enjoy the Junipero Serra festival
If you are lucky enough to be in Petra on the third Sunday of September, you can enjoy the famous Junipero Serra festival, which is held in honour of this fray. On this day there are parades that celebrate him, and they exhibit different flowers and floats, as well as many handicrafts of Junipero Serra, made especially for sale during the festival season. If festivals are your thing, book a villa in Soller. Visit in May to enjoy the Moors and Christians Festivities, or arrange your trip so you get to experience the Sant Bartomeu festivities in August.
6. Take a stroll at Fray Junipero Serra Square
This is another of Petra's main squares and is perfect for a stroll because of its picturesque and rather tranquil aura. Surrounded by green palm trees and colonial buildings, here you can also see the statue in honour of Junipero Serra in the centre of the square.
