Travel Agents View a few places which are worth a look which are the 18th century church of Sant Pere, the Rectory and the flour mills of Sa Cometa and Can Mavis

Sencelles is situated in the centre of Majorca and is only 25km from Palma.

There are a few shops, bars and restaurants but if you were looking for more choice you would need to venture further a field.

There is not much to do in the village but there are a few places which are worth a look which are the 18th century church of Sant Pere, the Rectory and the flourmills of Sa Cometa and Can Mavis.

Majorca Insider The great thing about Sencelles is that it's off the beaten track and exudes a traditional and well preserved charm

This small town, or perhaps best described as large village, lies in the heart of Majorca's central plain, Es Pla, and even though it is only some 25 kms from the capital Palma, could be on another planet. The great thing about Sencelles is that it's off the beaten track and exudes a traditional and well preserved charm.

The town is surrounded by natural farmland where almonds, figs and grapes grow in abundance. In fact Sencelles has become part of the resurgence in Majorcan wine production with delicious Son Prim being its best known label.

Sencelles really is the place for those seeking total peace and tranquility with its rural location and yet it has the best of both worlds because idyllic –but busy-beaches such as Es Trenc aren't far away. In the town itself there is a lively outdoor market held every Wednesday which aside from vegetables and fruit, sells some local artisan gifts.

I often go cycling or walking in the area and there are some excellent cycling routes offered by the local tourist office. Nearby you can make an interesting excursion to the archaeological site of Son Fred, one of Majorca's prehistoric talayot locations, just a kilometre along the road to Inca. Also worth visiting is the still functioning windmill Can Xico and the 18th century church of Sant Pere in the town. Perhaps the most important attraction in the vicinity and one which I rate enormously is the Astronomical Observatory at Costitx. Aside from its gigantic telescopes, the observatory now has an interactive planetarium and you can even book to have a delicious barbecue there. There aren't many restaurants about but the family owned and run Sa Cuina de N'Aina in the village centre is charming and there's plenty of good meat and fish choices on the menu.
