Petra in Mallorca

Petra in Mallorca is another local town, located in the central part of the island. In addition to attracting visitors with its beautiful architecture and landscapes straight from the movies, Petra is also the birthplace of a local celebrity, Fray Junípero Serra – a Franciscan friar, doctor of philosophy and theology, beatified by Pope v. John Paul II, and canonized by Pope Francis. His house currently serves as a museum for visitors.

Apart from that, the town also boasts some nice trails for cyclists and hikers. There is also a local market held every Wednesday between 9 am and 1:30 pm where you can buy local products, souvenirs, clothes and much more. What draws Yacht Charter visitors to Petra is definitely the opportunity to get a closer look at Mallorcan culture and history. The locals make their living mainly from farming, many of them working in the larger cities nearby. It’s definitely a strongly religious society, which is why there are many religious activities taking place here.
