The seat of the Barony of Bunyolí, a testament to history, and one of the great historic hotels of Europe.
The Barony of Bunyolí was created in 1232 and comprises properties in Palma and the easternmost part of the Serra de Tramuntana, today a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The Son Bunyolí estate is among the properties that still exist today. In the 16th century, the building that currently houses the Posada de Terra Santa Boutique Hotel became the seat of the baronial curia. Owing to a growth in trade, kilns and furnaces were installed in the environs of the curial seat of the Barony of Bunyolí, as well as at de’n Candeler, and potters, esparto grass weavers, blacksmiths and weavers organised themselves into the guilds that have inspired the names of some of the streets in the area, and that can still be seen today.
All of these pioneers were joined by the countless pilgrims and helpers from the Franciscan Mission of Tierra Santa, who stayed on the same street as the hotel, giving rise to the street’s name of Posada de Terra Santa.
