The vast majority of visitors to Mallorca do not expect to find the “small jewels” found in the rustic estates around the island. We are talking about the “possesssó”, the great traditional Mallorcan house.
These huge traditional Mallorcan houses were authentic mills which produced everything necessary to survive or thrive, depending on which social structure you belonged to.
They were a real microcosm. They had laws and a life of their own.They were inhabited by aristocratic families and their entourage of servants, cooks, day laborers… that, on many occasions, exceeded one hundred people.
Today, the vast majority of them are private properties, and are closed to the rest of society.
