For guest book comments please request,: The very name Fornalutx is the subject of debate. Some say it derives from horno and lutz, describing the man’s view of the carbon burning oven lights as they clambered down in the evening from harvesting the terraces. Others say that it originates from the glow of the smithy’s forge, forja or formel. The English poet Robert Graves, who lived for many years in nearby Deía, speculated that the ending '-lutx' came from the Latin 'lux', as in light and Lucifer! He related this to tales of witchcraft in medieval times. Your choice. The smithy is still there; his fine work evidenced by beautiful hand crafted railings and village lampposts.

Soller has a pleasant swimming pool and tennis cou: Fornalutx on the edge of the village ,boasts a children's play ground and Tennis courts. Also two Petanque courts. A bus service travels between Fornalutx, Biniaraix and Soller on a regular basis.

Fornalutx enjoys a well-deserved reputation as one of the most picturesque villages in Spain and has won several national awards for the loving way in which buildings, streets and amenities are cared for and maintained. Fornalutx offers a true oasis of tranquillity, scented by citrus trees and almond blossoms. As its ancient houses built in mellow, terracotta stone stand sentinel over narrow cobbled mule paths - so the imposing peaks of the Tramuntanas fall steeply into the sea, creating coves so sheltered as to be almost invisible. These in turn give way to lush green valleys and - in the winter - rushing torrentes. Many of these areas can be explored from the village by taking the local twisting mountain roads, revealing a different panoramic vista at each turn..

Close to Fornalutx is the Baranque - one of the wonders of the world. Starting from the hamlet Biniaraix, these stone steps were cut through the mountains perhaps 2,500 years ago by the Carthaginians.
