Religious architecture

Within the town centre, at the highest point of Santa Margalida is the jewel of the village, the Parish Church of Santa Margalida. The retaining wall of the hill on which the temple is situated is one of the most attractive spaces in the village, from where you can see the wide cultivated plains that surround Santa Margalida.
