Also, we adapt to your dietary needs: How about a special cyclist’s breakfast before your tour? Or a lunch package to give you new energy for the next stage of the route? – We create healthy and delicious meals adapted to your needs and wishes.
After a long day on the bike we recommend a massage in our massage room, for example a pressotherapy to loosen the muscles.
Sineu’s main building is the parish church of Santa María de Sineu with her unique nave and several side chapels.
Further places to visit are the Ceramic Museum in the presbytery and “El León” – the winged lion statue made of copper sitting in front of the building. The lion, symbol for the evangelist Mark, holds Sineu’s coat of arms in his front paw.
The railway station which dates back to the early 20th century is home to the arts centre of the city, the “Centro de Arte de Sineu”. Regularly, expositions with contemporary art from well-known artists take place here.
The Hotel Can Joan Capó is located ideally to discover the island of Majorca: prime destinations, for example, Palma de Mallorca, Valldemossa, Puerto Sóller, Artá and Cabo Formentor, as well as beautiful beaches such as the famous Es Trenc, are max. 60 km away. We strongly recommend a trip with a Llaüt, the traditional Majorcan boat, which will give you the chance to discover Majorca from the sea. Sineu is located on the railway line that connects Manacor and Palma de Mallorca. You can thus travel by train to some cities on the island, for example, Consell, Binissalem and Inca.
Distances and journey time by car:
Palma de Mallorca: 40 km | 40 minutes · Cabo Formentor: 57 km | 1 hour · Valldemossa: 40 km | 45 minutes · Harbour de Sóller: 55 km | 50 minutes · Artá: 38 km | 40 minutes · Beach Es Trenc: 40 km | 45 minutes
Sineu’s weekly market with its food and vegetable stalls takes place every Wednesday and has become firmly established as one of Majorca’s trading centres since its inauguration by Jaime II in 1306. Today it is Majorca’s only market where living animals are traded.
In Sineu the most festive time of the year is the Holy Week: Don’t miss the processions on Good Friday when the “Capirotes” dressed in their pointed hoods accompany the marsh with drums and trumpets.
On 25 April Sineu celebrates its patron saint: Saint Mark.
Sineu is Majorca’s capital of spring festivals – no city attracts more visitors than Sineu during “Sa Fira”, the oldest festival of the island taking place on the first Sunday in May since 1318.
The fair is mainly dedicated to agriculture, livestock farming as well as arts and crafts. Up to this day it keeps its traditions alive: Fruit, vegetables, plants and clothes are sold at the church square and in the Calle Mayor, poultry on the steps of San Marcos, knifes in the church alley. The marketplace is filled with animals. There is a cattle show and an exhibition of agricultural machines and cars.
On 15 August Sineu celebrates a huge fair with games, fireworks and funfair rides.
