The visit begins in Puerto de Andratx in Es Saluet, a small stream that flows into the Port d'Andratx where small boats and typical llaüts moors. Because of its location, boats found here are protected from rough seas and bad weather. To reach the sea pass under the road and just after, beneath an ornate bridge that bears the same name. We continue along the west side of the port where is the Lonja, a building where in the afternoons you can buy fresh fish catch by local fishermen and enjoy the postcard formed by the boats of fishermen moored next to the fish market.
Moving to the second line the harbor find charming shops and boutiques of local and international brands as well as a wide range of restaurants. On the same street can find the church of Nostra Senyora del Carme. A small church built in the early twentieth century and quefue blessed on December 25, 1918 to coincide with the Christmas Day. From the beginning, the church was dedicated to Virgen del Carmen and so every year celebrate its festival on July 16, which is the Feast of the Mare de Deu del Carme, patroness of fishermen.
