You can visit the rural Punico-Roman settlement of Ses Paises at Cala d'Hort and the Phoenician village of Sa Caleta. Additionally, there are the watch towers located in the coast, such as the Torre de Ses Portes and the Torre de Comte, also known as Torre d'en Rovira, built in the XVII and XVIII centuries to alert from possible marine buccaneer invasions. The medieval churches in Sant Jordi de Ses Salines, Sant Josep de Sa Talaia, Sant AgustÝ des VedrÓ, Sant Francesc de sEstany and Sa Revista, built between XVI and XVIII centuries, are very popular places to visit due to their unique design and typical architecture.
