Possessions are unique constructions that reflect Mallorcan culture and traditions. From the Middle Ages to the present, Possessions have defined the character and idiosyncrasy of Mallorca. They were extremely active rural hubs focused on agriculture and livestock farming and home to both their owners and workers. The owners of the farms occupied the main buildings while the workers lived in the more humble buildings that surrounded them. All of them were connected by roads and were a genuine reflection of the structure of ancient society.
They had vegetable gardens, fruit trees and a wide range of different crops such as cereals and olives. Forestry was also carried out in their surroundings and animals such as sheep were raised. Bread was made in the tafona mill, wine matured in the cellers and water was collected from the aljubs. They were a little like self-sufficient small towns which also had their own traditions and folklore. Possessions have enormous cultural value and at Itinerem we aim to promote them, preserve them and make them better known. Take a look at some of the Possessions we currently offer which now also
provide opportunities for rural tourism.

Built in the 14th century and owned by the same family since the 16th century, Can Torna de Son Quint was a Possession with an origin that goes back even further in time. On the land where it now stands, both Arab and Roman remains have been found, and it has been inhabited and cultivated for more than 2,000 years. This history gives character and soul to this manor house located on the outskirts of the village of Esporles.

MA-3232 highway (Sant Joan-Sineu) km 0.4, 07240 Sant Joan, Balearic Islands
Gossalba is a manor house in the heart of the Pla de Mallorca area. It is only half an hour from Palma de Mallorca and yet the interior location is far removed from the bustling tourist resorts, making Gossalba a genuine haven of peace. It is an old Possessión manor house built in the 18th century but with an origin even older. It dates back to before the Christian recovery of the island and its name is a feminisation of the name Gonzalvo after Gonzalo de Verí donated it to his son in 1271.
Nowadays it provides accommodation surrounded by olive trees and completely renovated in 2017. A place with history where you can let go.
Finca Mirabó. Ctra. Km 16, 07170 Valldemossa, Balearic Islands
Did you know that “mirabó” means beautiful views? Well, that is also how we could describe the soul of Mirabó de Valldemossa, a charming boutique hotel in the town of the same name at a height of 500 metres in the beautiful Sierra de Tramuntana mountains. The location gives you a hint of the stunning views it provides. The origins of this Possession go back to the 16th century when it used to be an olive farm. Since 1898 it has belonged to the same family, so traditions have been inherited from one generation to the next down to the present day, in which Son Mirabó has become a small hotel with a huge amount of charm. Come and discover it.
