Torre de S'Estalella #Mallorca
The rural property of s’Estalella dates back to the XIII century, when the island of Majorca was conquered by King Jaume I and the consequent expulsion of Muslims happened. The first settler of the area was Ramón de Stella, and the rural property was subsequently passed down from generation to generation.
The following centuries were times of pirates and fishermen; it was then that a defence system that ran throughout the Majorcan coast with a hundred defence towers was devised. S’Estalella tower, dating from 1577, was the first one built. It was then that the fishermen settled in Punta de S’Estalella.
In early times, those lands were of little value due to the poverty of the farmland and the insecurity and destruction that privateer invasions caused.
The family owns S’Estalella since the eighteenth century and from the very beginning, its members have taken care of the environment in which the property is located
