The hillside town of Búger is the smallest municipality in Majorca, located in the north-west of the island within the region known as Es Raiguer. Renowned for its natural beauty, it’s an ideal place for those who wish to be in a quiet rural location to experience authentic Majorca, reconnecting with the countryside and enjoying life at a slower pace. Stroll around the cosy traditional streets to view the town hall, the parish church and a beautiful fountain in the main square, complemented by a lunch alongside locals at one of the relaxed restaurants or cafés. Sample an award-winning ensaimada at the local bakery and pick up fresh local produce and artisan goods historically made in Búger at the weekly market.
The surrounding countryside is best explored on a cycling trip, where olive trees, almond and carob fields stand out and the Tramuntara mountain range provides a scenic backdrop. Spot distinctive windmills along the way, which illustrate the town’s long history in agriculture which continues to be at its heart. Búger neighbours the charming village of Muro just ten minutes away where you can visit one of the island’s greatest ethnological museums. The caves of Campanet are another attraction in the area just a ten-minute drive away and you’re less than half an hour from Alcudia Bay and the livelier Pollensa.
