Sta. María | Can Pastilla
Sineu is located right in the centre of the island of Majorca. There are two structures that must be mentioned as they change the otherwise flat landscape: Sant Nofre Hill (255 metres) and Reig Hill (206 metres).
The most important building in Sineu is the parochial church of Saint Mary of Sineu. In Sant Francesc Street you can find the Convent of Jesus Maria (of baroque style), which was founded in the year 1667. Another historic monument is the Palace of the Kings of Majorca, a building which was rebuilt during the reign of King James ll of Majorca in 1309)
In Calle del Hospital (Hospital Street), we come across the Chapel of Sant Josep (Saint Joseph), founded in the 13th century.
Santa María is an areas of great contrasts. If you visit it on a quiet day, you will think you have stepped into an authentic Majorcan village, with charming stone houses and friendly country folk.
It plays host to one of the most striking markets on the island, and it is a nucleus for local craftsmen and oenologists. In addition to lively bars and cafés, it also offers a variety of options which are very appealing both to visitors and international residents who are looking for a more luxurious way of way.
Since around the year 3000-1400 BC, Santa María has had a long history of wine making. To reach the village you will pass though large vineyards and farms set in fields of almond trees.
