A Food Lovers Delight: Sampling the Potatoes of Sa Pobla
With more than thirty years of experience in Mallorca’s hospitality scene, we at Hoposa Hotels and Apartments have had the pleasure of discovering all of the little gems that the island has to offer.
One such gem is the picturesque town of Sa Pobla. If you’ve never been to Sa Pobla before, you may be surprised to learn that potatoes are what make it special! In fact, the town is Spain’s largest exporter of potatoes. Now, if you’re a tourist visiting the area, you may be wondering why this is significant for you. The answer is that the potato has actually made Sa Pobla a bit of a food lovers paradise.
Each year, the popular Potato Festival is held in the town’s main square. During this time, local bars and restaurants come together to offer their best potato based dishes. Over the years, the cuisine has ranged from classic chips to more unusual fare like potato chocolate mousse.
This year, the event was held during the first week of June, and featured twenty-five different food vendors offering dozens of tasty potato based treats.
Even if you never make it to Sa Pobla during a festival, you’ll still be able to enjoy many of these wonderful dishes at the local restaurants. Dining in the town is a great way to experience the area’s rich culture, and enjoy the warm hospitality that’s always shown to visitors. With around twelve thousand residents, Sa Pobla has a small town feel, and is a great place to have a relaxing getaway and see what life is really like on Mallorca.
Along with some delicious food, you can enjoy a great local wine or beer, and then take some time to explore. You can visit the Parish church, or learn about the history of the area in the town museum. As you make your way through Sa Pobla, we’re sure you’ll agree that this quaint farming community is actually one place in Mallorca that visitors shouldn’t miss.
What makes the town even better is the fact that it’s quite close to other key points of interest. There are excellent beaches just a short journey to the north, and a number of notable tourist attractions that are also nearby.
If you’re looking for quality accommodations in the area, Hoposa Hotels and Apartments can offer you a number of attractive choices. Whether you’re bringing the family for a fun filled holiday at the beach, or you’re a solo traveler looking for an amazing wellness retreat, we’ve got a property that meets your needs.
