Today Mallorca is a modern day wine producing area with 16 local vineyards covering some 400 hectares of land. The production of wine tops the agricultural list of industries located on this island. This apparent when you take into consideration that the region produces some two million litres of red and white wine annually. The islanders must be a thirsty lot as most of the wine is consumed on the island. Binissalem has been designated a historic site since 1983 due to the preservation of its 18th and 19th century buildings in the old town centre. With this in mind, you might like to take a stroll around the old section of town that is after you have had a glass or two of the local brew. Binissalem is situated in the middle of the island only 12 miles from the island’s capital of Palma. When you arrive in Binissalem, you will feel as though you have taken a step back in time because it is far away from the madding crowds of the popular beaches of Mallorca’s south coast. When you arrive at the airport, you will need a taxi or a hire car as Binissalem is not on a major route and is by passed by the public transportation.
