The village is situated in a valley that goes as far as the nearby village of Sóller, the reason for its impressive views.
One of the peculiarities of this village are its painted tiles. This was a tradition that began in the 17th century on Mallorca and it is in Fornalutx where this kind of art was most popular.
More than a thousand years ago, Fornalutx was Islamic farmland. Nowadays, it resists the passing of the years in the best possible way. Its inhabitants are conscious to take care of the paved streets and the flight of limestone steps. If you walk along its streets you will see carefully decorated front doors and cultivated plants that make this village a little treasure in the middle of the Sierra de Tramuntana – the Tramuntana mountain range.
