• Sineu gives the visitors a perfect taste of Mallorca’s history. Remains like the Son Rossinyol and Son Vanrell 'talaiots', from the megalithic era, its old names such as 'Sinium' during the roman occupation or'Yiynau' during the Arab époque, the biggest parish church on the island Nostra Senyora de los Angeles, dating back from the 13th century, or the palace built by the order of Jaume II the King in 1309 on the remains of an antique Arab building to be his residence, can give the visitor and idea of the ancient culture the village carries inside.
Sineu is also proud to be the capital to the Spring Fairs (“Fires de Primavera' in mallorquin) with Sa Fira, celebrated every year during the 1st Sunday of May. Also, every Wednesday during all year round,Sineu has it own market having place at the main square, well known by the locals all around the island and highly reccommed among other Mallorca markets.
Those willing to try the authentic Mallorca dishes will found Sineu to be the perfect place, as it is plenty of 'Cellers' (the typhical mallorcan restaurants) serving dishes as the traditional roast suckling pig (most known there as “lechona') or the lamb thigh (“paletilla de cordero'). A Best of Mallorca favourite is Sa Plaça, on the church square: ask for the 'frito de marisco' (deliciuos), made of vegetables and seafood, a variation of the Mallorca typhical 'frito'.
Sineu is also really interesting for cultural strolls and gives well in place information to visitors so they can do it themselves with no need of a guide.
If you do come to Sineu during the warm season, sitting outside a bar and watch the time go by while you feel its peace and tranquillity is a must. And do not forget to try the 'hierbas', the mallorcan liquor! bestofmallorca.net
• Majorca remains a choice spot for a winter weekend abroad. Easily reached and with more than 200 four or five-star hotels to choose from, the island is perfect for a few days of touring and tapas – come rain or shine.
'We get plenty of sun in winter,' says Valerie Crespi-Green, an English nurse who has lived on the island for more than 30 years and leads guided walks through the magnificent peaks of the Serra de Tramuntana. She recommends a visit in late January or early February, when the island's four million almond trees are in blossom. If there's a nip in the air, pop into a café for a reviving lumumba (hot chocolate with brandy) – or just move to another part of the island. Simply by taking a short drive south from the mountains to the sea you can find yourself swapping cardigans for short sleeves.
With its tree-lined promenades, abundant art museums, swirling Modernista architecture and cosy bars – plus a six-mile seafront cycle path for fighting the Yuletide flab – Palma is made for a stress-free city break. Nigel Tisdall for The Telegraph.
