If you are familiar with Mallorcan wine, then it's more than likely you will have heard of Binissalem. This small town in central Mallorca is most famously associated with wine production. Surrounded by some of the island's best vineyards and bodegas, wine buffs should make it their mission to stop by on a trip to the island.
Aside from its wine roots, the town itself predominantly remains a sleepy, authentic, blonde sandstone Mallorcan village. There are a few bars and restaurants available servicing mainly the locals as well as a few tourists visiting the town. Binissalem lies where the Mallorcan plains meet the Serra de Tramuntana mountains, making it a popular pit-stop for outdoor enthusiasts, although many are drawn to the surrounding countryside filled with vineyards and orange and almond groves.
The town boasts excellent travel links as it is just off the main motorway travelling between Palma and Alcudia. The fact that the train service from the capital reaches Binissalem also means it is well connected to other towns around the island.
