Initially, the village of Son Servera, located on the northeast of Mallorca and close to the sea, was a small village that belonged to Artà. In less than fifty years, this small and rural population centre has grown into an important municipality highly influenced by the tourist industry. It is located between the municipalities of Capdepera, Artà and Sant Llorenç des Cardassar and has a coastal area of 7 km.
The name of the village comes from the medieval knight Jaume Servera, who took part in the conquest of Mallorca. Thanks to the Royal Property Distribution, he was granted the area that today is known as Son Servera.
The primitive centre of the village is situated in Plaça de Sant Joan. There is evidence that this square already existed in 1585. It is an open space from which a narrow street network develops, with houses that constitute a good example of traditional Mallorcan architecture. However, there are also some stately houses.
Son Servera’s main population centres are Cala Millor, Costa dels Pins and Cala Bona.
In Son Servera, there is an inactive train station, which was built in the 19th century. Trains coming from Palma stopped operating there in 1977. Today, this station houses the municipal music school.
In this municipality there are many places you can visit: Costa dels Pins, Cala Bona’s harbour, Sant Llorenç and Son Servera, with their weekly markets, Son Carrió, just a few kilometres away, S’Illot and its impressive Talaiotic settlement, and Punta de N’Amer, a vast virgin area that was declared Natural Area of Special Interest. Punta de n’Amer also has a watchtower from the 17th century, with a view over the beautiful bay of Cala Millor, a real hallmark in Mallorca.
