In the south of the island there is the village of Es Migjorn Gran, formerly called San Cristóbal.
It originated in 1769 due to the efforts of a group of men from Ferreries led by Cristóbal Barber, who took the name of the primitive hermitage around which the quiet village was formed.
Dr. Francisco Camps Mercadal was born and practiced his profession as a doctor, a remarkable historian and folklorist, a patient researcher of the customs, narrations and songs of the peasant sector.
The municipality of Es Migjorn Gran is the region of all the Balearic Islands that is richest in megalithic monuments, with a density of 5 prehistoric remains per km2; as his parish priest wrote at the beginning of the last century, "the whole term is a talayot".
Among the main remains of the past stand out the great "Cova des Coloms", of the proportions of a cathedral; the hypostyle hall of Binigaus and the colossal talayot of "Sant Agustí Vell", whose large chamber is unique in archaeology. The beaches of Santo Tomas and Binigaus are also within the municipality of Es Migjorn Gran.
The town has a series of hiking trails along the camí de Cavalls, as well as a 2.8 km circular route that circles the town to admire the typical orchards and local customs.
A set of two lodgings with capacity for up to 10 Pax, which can be booked independently (Apt for 2 Pax or Main house for 8 Pax) located in the village of Es Migjorn Gran, in the centre-south of the island and with easy access to Santo Tomás Beach and local hiking trails of great ecological value.
