Dining and drinking


Son Carrio is a small village close to the tourist town Cala Millor.
The bike line Via Verde from Artá to Manacor passes Son Carrio.
Despite the mighty church there is nothing much to be seen.

Construction of the Catholic church of Sant Miquel began in 1899 
based on plans sketched out by Monsignor Antoni María Alcover, 
revised by Joan Guasp and slightly modified by the famous Catalan 
architects Antonio Gaudí and Joan Rubió. It was inaugurated in 1907 
and its most outstanding features are the Neo-Romanesque-style façade, 
the row of balconies with terrace, the fan-shaped rose window 
and the four-storey bell tower.

Next to that church there is the restaurant Es Torrent.
Such a lovely surprise, excellent for, presented on a fantastic way,
reasonably priced and filling, indeed.

Some chefs are real artists!

On Friday it was finally time for the Beer Festival in Artá!

As usual the festival dedicated to the amber nectar 
takes place in the Amfiteatre de Na Batlessa, 
a public space in the town centre near the theatre 
which lends itself perfectly to an event like this holding 
a multitude of people and ideal for live music.

Not only local breweries, but more famous (German, Belgian, Italian)
beers were offered for tasting.
