Arta
-
Derived from the Arabic word jertan ('garden'), Arta has been occupied for at least 3,000 years, as evidenced by the remains of a Bronze Age site at Ses Paisses just outside this prosperous little town near the South East coast.

From the parish church of Transfiguracio del Senyor, an avenue of cypress trees
leads to Arta's crowning glory, its hilltop fortress and its 13th century cathedral
Sanitary de Sant Salvador.

The view over the rooftops, a jumble of tiles in every shade of brown, is one of the typical sights of Mallorca.
