Information and situation to Santanyi and Cala Santanyi
The locality Santanyi is surely one of the most adorable places on the east coast. The derivation of the name Santanyi is still discussible. Some claim the name derives from the Latin “Sancti Aini”, “Sanctus Agnus” or “Sancti Agnini” – translated the term means “Holy sheep” – a symbol of Jesus Christ. The sheep is also a part of coat of arms of Santanyi. Others say the name derives from the Arabic “Sanat Anawawil” what means “Coast of leaves huts”. Probably it will never be cleared entirely – however Santanyi is a place worth seeing.
Also here the famous stone of Santanyi will be dismantled. The limestone is characterized by its hardness and pressure resistance. Its originally bright colour changes with time into yellow-brown. On Saturday the market takes place in Santanyi and it is worth seeing. Around the big church of the locality various products are offered. In the church of Santanyi take place regularly organ concerts – also this you have to experience once – dreamlike beautiful!
The district of Santanyi includes the villages S’Alqueria Blanca, Cala Santanyí, Calonge, Es Llombards, Cala Llombards, Son Moja, Cala Figuera, Porto Petro, Cala d’Or and Cap d’es Moro.
