Andratx was built slightly inland from the port to act as a defence against pirate attacks. Evidence of this can still be seen today around the upper part of the town with its narrow cobbled streets and the almost the fortress like church of Santa Maria. The view back over the old town to Puerto Andratx makes the uphill walk well worth while. During the 13th Century, Andratx was an important centre of the Mallorcan culture with the Bishop of Barcelona and King Jaime I having homes here.
