Andratx is located at the south-west tip of Mallorca. This enchanting upmarket town sits amid hillsides of the Tramuntana Mountains covered in almond, orange pine and olive trees. Today the main tourist areas are to be found close by at Camp de Mar, Puerto Andratx and Sant Elm beach.
Classy boutiques, exclusive restaurants and a bustling Marina attract a host of international stars to the area. Claudia Schiffer and Michael Schumacher are two of the better-known residents.
Wednesday morning is market day in Andratx, when the streets fill with stalls selling local produce: fantastic cheeses and fish, local and fresh; and the stalls awash with the color of crisp vegetables. The market is located just below the church.
