Campanet, inland town located on a ridge of hills.
Campanet is located in the northeast of the island of Mallorca. Located at the foot of the Sierra de Tramuntana, is very close to the sea, mountains, countryside and other towns of great interest as Pollensa and Escorca.
The village stands on a hill and offers the typical characteristics of an interior village, dominated by popular type houses that combine with symbols of noble houses. The same location on the hill offers to the visitors spectacular views of the center of the island, of the sea and of the mountains.
