Sa Pobla is set in fertile reclaimed marshland, a country town at the centre of the farming community of the island. Known for its agriculture and the humble potato, which they export to many countries and even hold a festival in its honour each year. There are many attractions in the town as well as the surrounding area. There are a few shops, a bustling produce market and a toy and contemporary art museums. The beautiful Blue Flag beach of Muro is just a short drive away so you are able to experience beach life on a villa holiday in Sa Pobla.

History and Culture in Sa Pobla

It is thought that the origins of Sa Pobla date back to the time of the Roman conquest of the island by Consul Quintus Caecilius Metellus in 123 BC. This is also why some roads on Mallorca are called Cecili Metel. The Archaeological excavations from the Talaiotic era around Sa Pobla also reveal that there may even have been settlements here prior to this date. In the town, see the 17th Century Sant Antoni Abat church in Sa Pobla’s centre, or visit the Can Planes Museum of Contemporary Art with more than 100 works by artists from or living in Mallorca. Besides the paintings, the collection also includes many sculptures, they also host temporary exhibitions here.

It is a popular beach for families because of its easy access, restaurants, onsite facilities, child friendly activities and dedicated play areas.  The exceptionally shallow waters make it safe and perfect for little paddlers on a Sa Pobla villa holiday. If it is nature you are looking for, Sa Pobla is partly on the Albufera nature park, a protected wetland area. The nature reserve is particularly good for family walks and a spot of bird watching.
