Everything comes from the visit of Santiago Rusiñol to our island. This historic painter and writer, is known for being a great traveler and expressed his impressions of Mallorca in the book "L'illa de la calma" (1913), translated into English "The island of calm", which begins with this paragraph :
“Reader friend: if you suffer from neurasthenia or plan to suffer, which is already suffering; if you are stunned by the noise that civility implies, […], follow me to an island that I'll tell you, to an island where there's always calm, where men are never in a hurry, where women never get old, where they don't waste not even words, where the sun stays longer and Mrs. moon walks more slowly, infected by laziness. ”
And, despite the number of people visiting our island in recent years, you just have to visit some of the most magical corners of our island to discover what Santiago Rusiñol meant by his words.
