Artà The Essential
A rocky hillock indicates Artà, a town with narrow streets, where time seems to have stood still. From afar, you can make out the fortress perched high up in the village. This defensive architectural complex encompassing the 19C sanctuary, Santuari de Sant Salvador, is accessible from the Transfiguració del Senyor church via stairs. Ever since the Muslim era (10C-13C), a fortress has existed in this strategic position. Since then, it has been extended, consolidated and renovated.
