The stone buildings, hidden squares and winding streets have a rustic charm that is clearly visible. But what makes this place so special is the ties of the community. As you stroll along Bisbe Campins avenue, which has recently been pedestrianized, you will see laid-back bars, quiet cafes, the town hall and the Gothic church of Nostra Senyora de la Consolació, where local people gather. One of the surprises of Porreres is that in its town hall there is an exhibition of modern art, with works by Salvador Dalí. Another surprise is the great quality of the food and drink. Porreres is in the center of an area with a proud agricultural tradition and fresh local produce abounds. Its location and relaxed atmosphere explain why almost a fifth of the residents are foreigners.
