Alaior still reflects its charming medieval and historic heritage, on an ancient hill dominated by its beautiful church of Santa Eulalia. It is not unusual to see a rider on horseback, winding through the streets, as horses play a huge part in the towns culture. Alaior has a picturesque rural road running from its town to Es Mercadal, called the Cami d´en kane, which was the main thoroughfare, before the main road was built.
The municipality has some stunning beaches, such as Son Bou and Calan Porter, which are both a very short drive from the town. Alaior is fantastic for wondering about early or late evening, when the heat of the sun is not around and the light brings out a more intense colour pallet. There is a market and live music every Wednesday evening during the summer season and the whole town is alive and vibrant with tourists and locals alike, enjoying tapas, cold refreshments and the warm Mediterranean air.
