If you are planning a holidays in Campanet, Mallorca, the following information may help by giving you an overview on the resort.
When you think of glass – you may think about Venice and the small island of Murano. However, just outside the town of Capanet you will find Menestralia, a glass workshop where you can watch various glass making techniques. In fact, in 1600 a man called Dermenice Barovier traveller from Murano to Mallorca and in 1605 started work in the glass workshops and started to reach the Venetian art of glass working. The Mallorcans got so skilled in the art, that pieces from this era has been incorrectly listed as Venetian.
If you visit the Cathedral in Palma de Mallorca, you will not fail to notice the rose window, which comprises glass from this island. The glass industry did eventually die out, and it was not until the 19th century that glass-blowing was made popular again.
You will undoubtedly come across the church of St.Michael around which you will see olive groves and forests of oaks. However, after a heavy rainfall [normally occurs between the months of November and April in this area] the landscape is transformed when volumes of water come up from the cracks in the limestone and runs through the forest until it reaches the Torrent de Sant Miguel. If you hear of people talking about “proud springs” then this is the phenomenon they are referring to.
